Course Summary

Plant Biotechnology deals with the basics of plant tissue culture technique and methodology with more implementation and application of biotechnology tools and nutrient supplements for the better growth of plant saplings. This would help to understand the various application of plant tissue culture technique helping the farmers and agriculture market to get the growth in lesser environmental conditions and also could preserve the seeds by cryopreservation methods. The application of transgenic plants by altering the genes with the help of various enzymatic and recombinant tools would be able to produce a new variety of plant species with climate-friendly and beneficial quality for greater production.

Course Objectives

  • To learn the basics of plant tissue culture and the concepts related to the nutritional requirement for their growth
  • To understand the methods for preparing the media, its sources with sterilization of explants and growth conditions
