Establishment of Callus and Cell Suspensions and Isolation of Mutant Cell Lines in Mung Bean (Vinga Radiata Var. Aureus)
Part of the
Basic Life Sciences
book series (BLSC, volume 22)
Mung bean is an important pulse crop of India and forms the chief source of protein in vegetarian diet. Improvement in quality of pulses through mutations using tissue culture techniques is being given much attention these days. The present communication deals with establishment of callus and cell suspension cultures in mung bean.
