There are two main sides of our works exploiting embryo structure in durum wheat and some other cereals. First is haploid (or doubled haploid) embryo production using anther or microspore culture or intergeneric crosses, to ameliorate desirable characters genetically homozygote. Secondly, to develope convenient embryo culture technique in order to be stored and cultivated longer time of genotypes without being alien pollination etc. in field conditions. For that reason, two different auxin and also their combination with kinetin were used for mature embryos of wheat genotypes (hexaploid and tetraploid), to understand efficient dose for calli production and plant regeneration in plant tissue culture. Modified MS media were used adding a single dose of arabinogalactan protein (AGP) and without adding for regeneration. In further step of this study, most efficient auxin+ kinetin combination which is determined previous research, it was used in the same modified MS medium to produce calli production and plant regeneration in three different genotypes (hexaploid and tetraploid wheat and diploid barley). Data were calculated in five different developmental stages of treatments. All statistical analysis of data were performed and means were compared with Duncan's test. Genetics and morphological effects of AGP on genotypes were discussed with the results of variance analysis. Simple correlation coefficient (r) was calculated base on the main values of replications.
