Editorial Reviews


"In summary, this book is important for plant scientists as it thoroughly covers elementary technologies, providing the tools for comprehensive plant research." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 September 2011)

"For anyone working in the area of plant tissue culture, micro-propagation or transformation this book is essential reading." (The Journal of Experimental Agriculture, 1 October 2011)

From the Back Cover

The ability to culture cells is fundamental for mass propagation and as a baseline for the genetic manipulation of plant nuclei and organelles. The introduction to Plant Cell Culture: Essential Methods provides a general background to plant cell culture, including basic principles, technologies and laboratory practices that underpin the more detailed techniques described in subsequent chapters. Whilst each chapter provides background to the topic area and methodology, a crucial aspect is the provision of detailed protocols with emphasis on trouble shooting, describing common problems and detailed advice for their avoidance. Plant Cell Culture: Essential Methods provides the reader with a concise overview of these techniques, including micropropagation, mutagenesis, cryopreservation, genetic and plastid transformation and somatic cell technologies. This book is an essential addition to any plant science laboratory's bookshelf.

  • Highlights the best and most up-to-date techniques for working on plant cell culture
  • Explains clearly and precisely how to carry out selected techniques in addition to background information on the various approaches
  • Chapters are written by leading international authorities in the field and cover both well-known and new, tried and tested, methods for working in plant cell culture

An essential laboratory manual for students and early-career researchers.
