Objective: Organogensis is the process by which multiple different cell types grow, differentiate and interact with each other (both molecularly and physically) to create large complex structures with integrated functions, such as the heart, brain or limb.
According to their findings, the long term plant tissue culture results in the huge loss of totipotency of organogensis to initiate cell differentiation.
Plant tissue culture introduced an efficient method of organogensis and plantlet regeneration from callus.
