Using Haworthia Cultured Cells as an Aid in Teaching Botany
Majumdar, Shyamal K.; Castellano, John M.
American Biology Teacher, 39, 8, 476-9,483, Nov 77
Callus induction from species of Haworthia can be done quickly in the laboratory with minimal equipment to study tissue dedifferentiation and cellular redifferentiation. It is shown that the cultured cell can also be used to study and evaluate the effects of various mutagens, carcinogens, and pesticides in controlled environments. (Author/MA)
