The genus Solanum is of great importance for the molecular and cell biology researches in general, and for the vegetal genetic engineering in particular.Solanum tuberosum ssp. tuberosum L. is one of the most important culture plants of the temperate zone, being the fifth in rank among the cultivated species around the world and the fourth in rank as world crop [12] and as proteins production among the culture plants.In the scientific activity of the Department of Genetics the magneto fluids nanocomposites have been used since from 1985. From the historical point of view the magneto fluids nanocomposites were use in technology, medicine and in the plant kingdom. The most spectacular results were obtained in medicine in the carcigenesis treatment. The magneto fluids nanocomposites were used in biotechnology, especially for improving the regenerative processes.In our experiments we wanted to understand the magneto fluids nanocomposites effect upon in vitro regeneration processes in Solanum tuberosum L. old varieties.These studies are good opportunities for further potato genetic resources conservation researches and for political and ethical decisions.
