Plant tissue culture plays an important role in the production and conservation of plant species. Its application, however, is hindered by some growth abnormalities such as shoot-tip necrosis (STN) caused by the culture conditions. This review article summarizes the literature published on the causes of in vitro STN in plants such as medium type, plant… CONTINUE READING
