About the book
PLANT TISSUE CULTURE: Protocols in Plant Biotechnology discusses basic essential techniques/methodologies of plant tissue culture including histological techniques, ex vitro rooting, hardening and acclimatization.. The information on how to analyze the plant tissue culture data through statistical analysis with examples, the recommended setting for taking photographs of tissue culture data through statistical analysis with examples and also the recommended setting for taking photographs of tissue culture material are highlighted. The reproducible protocols for various propagation, crop improvement and cost-reduction techniques is elucidated. The book also provides information on interpretation of the recorded data.
Each exercise in this book is profusely illustrated with original photographs. The protocols discussed are original contributions and are reproducible.
