Re: Tissue Culture
some clarification on these texts
alginate encapsulation is where you drop a somatic embryo in a sodium alginate solution thus creating what is known as a synthetic seed. wonderfull though complex technique.
Soma means "coming from the self" genesis "to give birth" so soma-tic embryo-genesis stands for creating embryos from the plants own cells, be they leaf, flower, stem or any other cell. (with different results )
protoplasts are basically cells with their cell walls removed allowing for "easy" in vitro crossbreeding and all sorts of other "easy" tricks (note the cynical """ marks around easy)All these techniques are pretty advanced. but it never harms to read ...right?
ps its always cool (for posting members) to ask me for specific articles, i have access to most scientific databases
