Plant tissue culture

Facility provides researchers with access to state of the art facility providing infrastructure and expertise for the implementation of molecular biology and genetic engineering technologies aiding the transfer of genes into plant, algal and fungal species. The facility also provides instruction and assistance in the use of these procedures to investigators involved in the broad area of experimental transfer and analysis of genes and genomes. The staff has extensive experience in working with in vitro plant tissue culture, micropropagation, plant genetic transformation, and molecular biology techniques. As part of an educational role, the staff provides technical training in plant tissue culture and transformation for undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and other researchers.
