From the reviews: "The approach of including several examples and description of well-illustrated protocols from available primary literature and the author's own laboratory experiences and helpful guidelines make this volume a gem for conventional tissue culture practices. ... To the best of our experiences, this volume is suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate level courses in life sciences, biotechnology, plant tissue culture, plant biotechnology ... or plant science courses. We also recommend this volume for M.Tech., M.Phil., and PhD level courses in the above-mentioned areas and related disciplines." (S. K. Basu and A. Goyal, Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology, November, 2009)
