Research work on creation of in vitro collection of the representatives of Antarctic flora has been started. Methods of surface sterilization, micropropagation and induction of cell lines for plant species of the Argentine islands (Antarctic) were optimized for two moss species — Warnstorfia fontinaliopsis (Mull.Hal.) Ochyra and Sanionia georgicouncinata (Mull. Hal.) Ochyra & Hedenas (Amblystegiaceae) as well as for Colobanthus quitensis (Kunth) Bartl (Caryophyllaceae). In vitro collection enable to carry out a number of systemic physiological, biochemical, molecular researches of Antarctic Region plants without disturbance of its natural populations.

Key words: antarctic plants, Warnstorfia fontinaliopsis, Sanionia georgicouncinata, Colobanthus quitensis, in vitro micropropagation.
