The course will cover historical aspect of plant and animal tissue culture, biology of cultured cells, design and layout of the cell culture laboratory, equipment’s and handling of the tissue culture. Aseptic technique, general safety, culture vessels and media preparation & sterilization will be discussed. Plant tissue culture topics will include somatic embryogenesis and organogenesis; the role of plant growth regulators, factor affects pathways (pollen/anther culture), characterization of embryogenic plant cell based on morphological and histology, somaclonal variation as well as the use of bioreactor for cultivation of plant cell.
