Embryogenesis In Vitro
This review will consider several aspects of the induction and exploitation of in vitro embryogenesis in plants. In particular it will describe recent molecular data that has supplemented the earlier empirical information obtained largely by trial and error. It will also describe how the process of induced embryogenesis is commercially exploited.
