Goals of the Strategic Council of Iran’s Flora Chromosome Index (IFCI)

Evaluation of the number of chromosomal and their morphology in order to:

– Determining of relationships between species;

– Using in hybridization system & production of new variation;

– Changing in ploidy levels to improve the economic properties;

– increase of Essential Oils, ….;

– Determination of species genome size for cyto-toxonomic studies and evaluation of genome size relationship with morphological, karyotypic, geographical & economical characterization of species;

– Identification of homo-ploid species & their hybrids;

– Prediction of phenotypic, physiological & ecological characteristics using genomic & Chromosomal data.
