Heterogeneous Associations of Cells Formed in Vitro
Two experimental systems are described which explore the applicability of in vitro culture to force associations between cells of widely divergent origins. In one experiment, chimeral plants were induced to differentiate from mixed calluses formed by coculturing cells of two tobacco species. In another experiment, a symbiosis was forced between cells of carrot and of the free-living nitrogen-fixing bacterium, Azotobacter vinelandii.
