The book is a complete reference on the art and science of plant tissue culture. Dynamic advances have been made in the last 20 years in plant tissue culture technology, leading to vast economic benefits. The book incorporates abundant information on the current areas of applied research in biotechnology such as production of new hybrids, mutants and genetically engineered plants. Innovative and novel approaches which could be successfully used at a commercial level have been described. Inclusion of exhaustive references to literature from research journals, scientific magazines, periodicals and seminar proceedings, which are not easily accessible, is a key feature of the book
