The course aims to provide knowledge of the principles, protocols and utilization of plant tissue culture systems, for plant in vitro propagation, for plant breeding programs, for cell transformation techniques and production of secondary metabolites.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student will be able to in vitro propagate plant species in vitro (from the onset of an aseptic culture to its growth) and use of in vitro techniques in support or as alternative to the traditional techniques for plant breeding programs, through induction of somaclonal variability.
