Poster summary

This is the first study on the application of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in plant cryopreservation. Supplementation of alginate bead matrix with AuNPs improves the efficiency of cryopreservation in L. spectabilis shoot tips. This is a breakthrough discovery that may accelerate the development and wide-scale implementation of cryobiology in biodiversity protection.
