IN MEMORIAM Butenko pursued her research in the biology of cul- tured cells of higher plants and became the leader and coordinator of this new ﬁeld of plant physiology and biotechnology. For half a century, she led forward fun- damental research on cultured cells by promoting and supervising molecular, cytogenetic, and population studies of the molecular and cell mechanisms of the characteristic processes of cell dedifferentiation and proliferation in vitro, the basic patterns of organogene- sis and somatic embryogenesis, the genetics of somatic cells, etc. These studies became the basis for several innovative biotechnologies developed by Butenko and her associates, including practical technologies for clonally propagating planting stocks and new crop vari- eties and bringing them into a healthy state and the in vitro methods to promote breeding and expand the genetic variation of original plant forms by mutagene- sis, cell selection, somatic hybridization, and gene transfer. The methods of meristem and pollen cryo- preservation, which were ﬁrst developed by Butenko and her coworkers, have already become
