Plant regeneration of the legume Lens culinaris Medik. (lentil) in vitro
Until recently, grain legumes in general have proven recalcitrant at de novo regeneration in vitro. By culturing portions of lentil (Lens culinaris) shoot meristems and epicotyls on a mediumExpand

Regulating innovative crop technologies in Canada: the case of regulating genetically modified crops.
The advent of genetically modified crops in the late 1980s triggered a regulatory response to the relatively new field of plant genetic engineering. Over a 7-year period, a new regulatory frameworkExpand
