Services / Tests carried out

In the Tissue Culture Laboratory, studies are pursued in organ and tissue culture of industrially and economically important forestry species including Eucalyptus, Acacia, Teak and bamboos with the major objective of cloning for large-scale multiplication. Attempts towards the morphogenesis in casuarina, which will be useful in the development of somaclonal variants as well as work on differentiation and expression of roots from the mature tissues of Dendrocalamus giganteus and Bambusa nutans for rapid multiplication are also carried out.
