Special Issue in Plants: Plant Tissue Culture II
Plant tissue culture has led to breakthroughs in understanding and applying the fundamental knowledge gained towards harnessing more from plants. It is an important technique that involves growing cells, tissues, and organs of plants on artificial media under a controlled environment. Several in vitro culture methods have been used to study and improve our knowledge on basic and advanced areas of plant biology, such as biochemistry, cytology, embryology, molecular biology, and physiology. This Special Issue is aimed at covering various aspects of plant tissue culture, such as germplasm conservation, genetic manipulation, morphogenesis, somatic embryogenesis, nutrition, large-scale clonal propagation, and the production of disease-free plants and useful metabolites.
