Cell Culture and Somatic Cell Genetics of Plants: Scale Up and Automation in Plant Propagation v. 8
This volume discusses and describes a variety of experimental strategies and systems to reduce labour costs by scale-up and automation of micropropagation. It features synthetic seed technology, embryogenic systems, micropropagation and automated propagation, bioreactors, robotics, and image analysis and also offers applications for field crops, ornamentals, and forestry.
