Solution

Tissue culture technology helps to produce thousands of plants from a single plant by the process of micropropagation. Somaclones are the clones that are genetically identical to each other and the parent plant.
Examples: Tomato and banana
 
Fusion of isolated protoplasts from two different varieties of plants is called somatic hybridisation. The hybrid formed from somatic hybridisation is called somatic hybrid, which further grows into a new plant.
Example: Pomato

Concept: Tissue Culture
