Rigorously explores the new challenges faced by modern plant tissueculture researchers and producers worldwide: issues of cost efficiency,automation, control, and optimization of the in vitro microenvironment.This book achieves a critical balance between the economic, engineeringand biological viewpoints, and presents well-balanced, unique, andclearly organized perspectives on current initiatives in the tissueculture arena. Each chapter offers guidelines leading towards an exhaustive, unprecedented level of control over in vitro growth, basedon emerging technologies of robotics, machine vision, environmentalsensors and regulation, and systems analysis. Unlike other tissueculture books which focus on specific crops and techniques, this bookspans the broad range of major tissue culture production systems, andadvances evidence on how some underrated aspects of the process actuallydetermine the status of the end product. Key researchers from industryand academia have joined to give up-to-date research evidence andanalysis. The collection comprises an essential reference forindustrial-scale tissue culture producers, as well as any researcherinterested in optimizing in vitro production.
