Overview

Automation and Environmental Control in Plant Tissue Culture rigorously explores the new challenges faced by modern plant tissue culture researchers and producers worldwide: issues of cost efficiency, automation, control, and optimization of the in vitro microenvironment. This book achieves a critical balance between the economic, engineering and biological viewpoints, and presents well-balanced, unique, and clearly organized perspectives on current initiatives in the tissue culture arena. Each chapter offers guidelines leading towards an exhaustive, unprecedented level of control over in vitro growth, based on emerging technologies of robotics, machine vision, environmental sensors and regulation, and systems analysis. Unlike other tissue culture books which focus on specific crops and techniques, this book spans the broad range of major tissue culture production systems, and advances evidence on how some underrated aspects of the process actually determine the status of the end product. Key researchers from industry and academia have joined to give up-to-date research evidence and analysis. The collection comprises an essential reference for industrial-scale tissue culture producers, as well as any researcher interested in optimizing in vitro production.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
' .. I therefore recommend this book for researchers and propagators actively involved in plant tissue culture. Discussions are thorough and references are abundant and current. Similarly, figures are plentiful and help broaden one's mental conceptualization of plant tissue culture. I would make an even greater point of sharing this volume with peers who may think that plant tissue culture has achieved an adequate stage of maturity to routinely serve applications in research science.'
Plant Tissue Culture and Biotechnology, 1:3, 1995
