Influence of agar on in vitro cultures: I. Physicochemical properties of agar and agar gelled media


The success of in vitro culture is related to several factors. Beside factors associated with the plant material or the medium composition, the physicochemical characteristics of gelled media can play an important role. In this paper, the latter aspect has been considered and the nature of agar powders has been investigated. Moreover, the process of gel… (More)
