Abstract

The ability to grow whole plants from individual plant cells using cell culture techniques has become a useful tool to help botanists study key biochemical, genetic and physiological processes associated with plant development. This image, obtained using a scanning electron microscope, shows lettuce shoots (Latuca sativa) developing in culture.
