Plants are made up of small component such as cells, organs or tissue that can be manipulated to grow complete plants. Without molecular genetics and plant culture, it would be void to discuss genetic engineering as they are core to this. The technique of plant tissue culture involves placing a piece of plant such as embryo and dipping it in sterile nutrient median and the science behind it. This technique production of extra copies of plant, enhance maturity, enables production of plants without the use of seeds.
In this essay we will discuss about Plant Tissue Culture. After reading this essay you will learn about: 1. Introduction to Plant Tissue Culture 2. Driving Principle behind Plant-Tissue Culture 3. History of Plant Tissue Culture 5. The Culture Environment 6.
The budding refers to as plant propagation in which buds are grafted in stem of desired plant. This practical method is used as asexual propagation for commercially grown plants for horticultural and agricultural trade. It is also called striking.
Objective: To study osmosis in living plant tissue. Biological principles: Water potential is the tendency for water molecules to enter or leave a system by osmosis through a differentially permeable membrane, while osmosis is the process in which water molecules move passively from a region of higher water potential to a region of lower water potential through a differentially permeable membrane. Therefore, potato cells, with their differentially permeable membrane, are selected as the medium for studying osmosis in this experiment. In this experiment, strips are cut from the same potato and placed in sucrose solutions with different concentrations to see if there are any changes in term of weight.
