The Plant Tissue Culture Laboratory provides a key service along the “jungle-to-lab-to-commercialisation” axis. The focus is to establish protocols to facilitate plant propagation for research and development as well as for large scale production of raw materials for product development and commercialisation.
The aim of plant tissue culture is to ensure that true-to-type progenies are obtained from mother trees with desirable traits for propagation. Besides using tissue culture techniques, the team also uses vegetative propagation techniques to support plant material production for research and scale up purposes.
The propagated plants will ensure that true-to-type progenies are obtained from the mother trees with desirable traits.
