Plant tissue culture is a unique opportunity to discover the development of multicellular organisms.
Photosynthesis is the basis for all energy for life on the planet. Students will explore photosynthesis through these experiments.
INTRODUCTION TO PLANT CELL CULTURE- Edvotek 908- $129 + GST
Complete in 60 minutes plus several weeks for growth.
Genetic modification of plants is a highly controversial area of biotechnology. Experiments in plants begin with establishing plant cells in culture. This involves de-differentiating plant cells to form plant “stem cells”. In this experiment, students will establish cell cultures of African Violets from leaves. They will then use plant growth regulators to encourage root growth from the cultured cells, and produce a mature plant.
