Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 22)


Recent developments in plant cell cultures have fostered the hope that this technique could be of invaluable help in crop improvement (1, 2). However, for effective utilization of this technique, methods have to be perfected for an efficient and rapid rate of plant regeneration from cultured cells.
