Aims and scope

In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology — Plant publishes peer-reviewed original research and reviews concerned with the latest developments and state-of-the-art research in plant cell and tissue culture and biotechnology from around the globe. Four issues cover cellular, molecular and developmental biology research using in vitro grown or maintained organs, tissues or cells derived from plants. Two special issues for the International Association for Plant Biotechnology (IAPB) deal with plant tissue culture, and molecular and cellular aspects of plant biotechnology. The IAPB and the Society for In Vitro Biology (SIVB) maintain completely separate and independent International Editorial Review boards for their issues.

Topics covered include:

  • Biotechnology/genetic transformation
  • Developmental biology/ morphogenesis
  • Micropropagation
  • Functional genomics
  • Molecular farming
  • Medicinal Plants
  • Metabolic engineering
  • Plant physiology
  • Cell biology
  • Somatic cell genetics
  • Secondary metabolism
