Interpretive Summary: Cotton biotechnology is constantly looking for new or improved germplasms with good agronomic traits but also for varieties that can be regenerated through tissue culture via somatic embryogenesis. GA98033 cotton line was developed by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station (GAES) and released in 2004. GA98033 has good agronomic traits, is resistance to fusarium wilt [caused by Fusarium oxysporum Schlecht f.sp. vasinfectum Atk. Sny. & Hans.], and capable of undergoing somatic embrygogenesis. The latter trait makes it a potential good candidate for genetic engineering.

Technical Abstract: GA98033 cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) (Reg. no. GP- , PI 634766) germplasm line was developed by the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station (GAES) and released in 2004. GA98033 combines high yield potential, acceptable fiber quality, resistance to fusarium wilt [caused by Fusarium oxysporum Schlecht f.sp. vasinfectum Atk. Sny. & Hans.], and is conducive to plant regeneration through tissue culture somatic embryogenesis.
