"Plant Cell Culture: Essential Methods"

Methods and Protocols

Michael R. Davey and Paul Anthony

Hardcover, 358 pages, May 2010
Price: $117.95 (Shipping and handling: $8.00 for U.S. delivery, $20.00 elsewhere).

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 a 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
