    Acclaimed as the most practical guide to plant tissue culture and widely adopted as a textbook, this seminal work is now even better. Plants from Test Tubes has been revised and expanded to include developments in biotechnology, such as genetic engineering and cell culture and introduces both the global and commerical impact of plant tissue culture. It provides detailed recipes for propagating plants from more than 30 families and explains how to set up a propagating laboratory, from a hobbyist's kitchen to an elaborate commerical enterprise.
