ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Genetic modification of plants is a highly controversial area of biotechnology. All such experiments in plants begin with establishing plant cells in culture. This involves de-differentiating plant cells to form plant "stem cells". In this experiment, your 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.
