About this book

It is my privilege to contribute the foreword for this unique volume entitled: “Plant Tissue Culture Engineering,” edited by S. Dutta Gupta and Y. Ibaraki. While there have been a number of volumes published regarding the basic methods and applications of plant tissue and cell culture technologies, and even considerable attention provided to bioreactor design, relatively little attention has been afforded to the engineering principles that have emerged as critical contributions to the commercial applications of plant biotechnologies. This volume, “Plant Tissue Culture Engineering,” signals a turning point: the recognition that this specialized field of plant science must be integrated with engineering principles in order to develop efficient, cost effective, and large scale applications of these technologies. I am most impressed with the organization of this volume, and the extensive list of chapters contributed by expert authors from around the world who are leading the emergence of this interdisciplinary enterprise. The editors are to be commended for their skilful crafting of this important volume. The first two parts provide the basic information that is relevant to the field as a whole, the following two parts elaborate on these principles, and the last part elaborates on specific technologies or applications.

Reviews

From the reviews:

Plant Tissue Culture Engineering brings the engineering-plant tissue culture link to a new dimension of understanding.

The editors have excelled in weaving an exquisite mosaic of plant tissue culture themes that are more than important – they are central – in the understanding of their engineering principles.

I, as a scientist constantly in need of novelties to improve my own tissue culture production systems, found this book to be of tremendous value. It brought new insights, new techniques, and most importantly new inspiration for new research ideas.

… I would not hesitate in recommending Plant Tissue Culture Engineering as an excellent supplement to a good tissue culture book. Most definitely students, researchers and professionals alike would benefit from the knowledge containted in these pages.

Jaime A. Teixeira da Silva, Global Plant Letters, Issue 1:2

"This volume successfully covers a broad remit, bringing together acknowledged experts and consisting of 24 chapters, structured under the headings of Machine Vision, Bioreactor Technology, Mechanised Propagation Systems, Engineering the Cultural Environment and Physical Aspects of Plant Tissue Engineering. Several chapters will be of broad interest to plant tissue culture laboratories … . is a very interesting and extensive volume, within which there are chapters of essential reading for anyone involved in either commercial plant tissue culture, or research into understanding fundamental plant developmental processes." (Steve Millam, Experimental Agriclture, Vol. 43, 2007)

"This book is the sixth volume of the series ‘Focus on Biotechnology’ edited by M. Hofman and J. Anzé. … This comprehensive book with many tables and figures can serve not only as up-to date source of information for researchers and teachers in the area of plant biotechnology but it also open up new vistas in this field." (J. Pospíšilová, Biologia Plantarum, Vol. 51 (3), 2007)
