Default Re: Tissue Culture

Tissue culture, the propagation of plants through the placement of small amounts of undifferentiated tissue or single cells in an artificial environment. The tissue is placed in a nutrient medium that favors the production of roots and shoots, and is later planted normally. By using tissue culture, the favorable qualities of plants can be precisely controlled, so that each plant is identical for the particular quality being sought, whether it be disease resistance or plant chemical production.

Thumbs down Re: Tissue Culture

Junior,

You forgot your citation:

"tissue culture." The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2008. Encyclopedia.com. 16 Mar. 2009 .

Plagiarism is not a pretty thing.
