About this book

Plant cell cultures are used extensively in studies of secondary metabolism, for the biosynthesis of pharmaceuticals, flavors, essences, and pigments. This book highlights recent developments in the in vitro growth of cultured plant cells and in the production of valuable secondary metabolites.Plant Cell Culture Secondary Metabolism details research on many exciting areas including:
