Plant Cell Cultures: Present and Projected Applications for Studies in Cell Metabolism

  • H. E. Street
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 3)


The primary phenotypic expression of genetic information is at the level of cellular metabolism. Sophisticated methods of monitoring qualitative and quantitative changes in cellular metabolism are therefore essential to studies in genetic manipulation. This lecture is therefore concerned to evaluate how far recent advances in plant cell culture now provide us with the necessary capability to monitor metabolism at the level of higher plant cells.
