Default Tissue culturing resource materials

Hey there buddies,

since I'm very interested in the whole tissue culturing process and hopefully one day I too will have enough bananas to try it with, I decided to create this post.
If admin wants to delete it, fine, but you see, the problem I encoutered is, that there's so many threads full of experience and advices, which is lovely and good, but for starter - many people don't even know waht you are bubbling about (sorry for the term, I just made it up ) - beginners.

So I created this thread for every experienced member, that knows anything about TC or has resources (books, links to web etc.), so that they can upload it here for every amateur to read and learn.
I know such texts and documents have probably been uploaded here many times, but this thread should solely serve only to a purpose of document exchange, preferrably with little or no writting, to keep it short (and I have written so much already).

OK guys, make it the short way then:
- if you have any exprience, put it on the .doc or .pdf and upload it here (with your nick of course in the title - for credits and thanks')
- if you have any books or other printable files (pdfs or another), upload it here please
- and finally, if you know about good web sites with explanations and/or kits, post it with a name above.

To the file name and linknames, please don't forget to add the level of proficiency:
1, 2, 3, where 1 is beginner, 2 is intermediate and 3 is professional.

Thanks so much, everyone who wants to learn the process from beginning is surely looking forward to reading it all.

Jack

Hello Jack,
There are a couple of threads regarding tissue culture on these forums. Have you read through them yet? Here are a couple:
Tissue Culture
tissue culture kits

Those threads above have discussions on sources and materials. The following link sells kits for home tissue culturing:
Kitchen Culture Kits - Intro Page

The best book for beginners that I know of is "Plants From Test Tubes" by Lydiane Kyte. Lowest price on the planet for this book is from Amazon.com

Have fun!

Chong

And Carol Stiff is a member here. She got me started on TC. I bought one of her kits. This is a great site fro beginners to intermediate TC'ers. There are lots of articles and a TC listserv that can get you research, daily updates on protocols and photos, techniques, etc, etc. You could spend your entire day just downloading useful stuff from that website and the links associated with it.

Yes, I'm already in the process of downloading, but I also meant something advanced, so that I have complete collection and then can start pretty quickly.

Yes, something like that I had in mind, more like a book, than just do-yourself 9 page manual.
Upload please, the sooner the better...

Thanks

Hmm, got some stuff here, let's see if I'm able to post it,...

This one is to big to post, so you'll have to download it separately:

Methods in Molecular Biology, vol. 6, Plant Cell and Tissue Culture. (37.8 Mb)

Kind Regards,

I took the liberty (and time!) to pdf-the Banana Improvement book,
just so I can put it in my own archives,...
It's a little more convenient than a website by my opinion.
Kind regards,

I´ll have to say SORRY once more. ( How many more times? )
Maybe each day. As You kindly said ( AND TIME ).
I can´t answer much because I am an electronics technician, not Biologist or Agricultural. I also hate asking too much. If any of you needs some help with pump controllers ( timing circuits ) feel free to contact me.
This is for Emely from Miami. I lost your contact info. Please email me.
Tganks again , Jack and everybody else.
If any of You plan to come across ( Venezuela ) , please let me know.Bye,

Very nice idea , Jack. Some people, even though they help, post some exxtremely scientific lecturing. Somebody like me needs the very basics to start with.
