Plant Tissue Culture
Course Duration: 06 Months
The success of plant biotechnology relies on the fundamental techniques of plant tissue culture, Understanding basic biology of plants is a prerequisite for proper utilization of the plant system or parts thereof. Plant tissue culture helps in providing a basic understanding of physical and chemical requirements of cell, tissue, organ culture, their growth and development. Establishment of cell, tissue and organ culture and regeneration of plantlets under in vitro conditions has opened up new avenues in the area of plant biotechnology.PTC is a collection of technique used to maintain or grow plant cell, tissue or organs under sterile condition on a nutrient culture medium of known composition. PTC is used to produce clones of a plant in a method known as micropropagation. PTC is the rapidly expanding field of botany.
This certificate course may help entrepreneurs & students for
• Getting hands on training of plant tissue culture.
• Setting a small scale or large scale commercial unit to produce seeds & crops for business purpose.
• Research and development in production of better varieties of plants, seeds, fruits, crops etc.
The motivation behind to start this course to produce a preliminary as well as introductory text to undergraduate, graduate, post graduate students so that student may very well understand the theoretical & applied aspects of plant tissue culture.Special care has been taken to present the subject matter as per need of students and include maximum recent information available up-to-date.It is hoped that the course would be useful to students & entrepreneurs in generating enough interest to inspire the inquisitive mind.
