Plant Tissue Culture
Plant tissue culture is the technique of growing and maintaining plant cells, tissues or organs especially on artificial medium in suitable containers under controlled environmental conditions. Any part of a plant is taken out which is known as explant and grown in a test tube under sterile conditions. Cell division from explant forms callus which can be grown into another new plant. Plantlets can be regenerated by tissue culturing which involves various methods such as inoculation, incubation, regeneration and hardening. Transgenic plants can also be engineered by tissue culturing techniques. Micropropagation is an integrated technique which also involves in regeneration of plants by various methods such as Multiplication by Adventitious Shoots, Axillary Buds and Apical Shoots, Multiplication Through Callus Culture, Organogenesis and Somatic Embryogenesis.
