About this book

Introduction

This book provides a general introduction as well as a selected survey of key advances in the fascinating field of plant cell and tissue culture as a tool in biotechnology. After a detailed description of the various basic techniques employed in leading laboratories worldwide, follows an extended account of important applications in, for example, plant propagation, secondary metabolite production and gene technology. Additionally, some chapters are devoted to historical developments in this domain, metabolic aspects, nutrition, growth regulators, differentiation and the development of culture systems. The book will prove useful to both newcomers and specialists, and even “old hands” in tissue culture should find some challenging ideas to think about.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The approach of including several examples and description of well-illustrated protocols from available primary literature and the author’s own laboratory experiences and helpful guidelines make this volume a gem for conventional tissue culture practices. … To the best of our experiences, this volume is suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate level courses in life sciences, biotechnology, plant tissue culture, plant biotechnology … or plant science courses. We also recommend this volume for M.Tech., M.Phil., and PhD level courses in the above-mentioned areas and related disciplines." (S. K. Basu and A. Goyal, Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology, November, 2009)
