The Society for In Vitro Biology held a special Hands on Tissue Culture Workshop* for High School and Community College Teachers on Saturday, June 11, 2016 in San Diego, California as part of the 2016 World Congress on In Vitro Biology.
This workshop taught the basics of how to perform plant cell/tissue culture without extensive lab equipment in the classroom. Each workshop participant received a USB drive containing informational materials that could be taken back to their home institutions for further curriculum development and incorporation.
Those informational materials are available as pdf links below.
- Workshop Welcome
- Workshop Resource Guide – Hands-on Plant Tissue Culture
- Sylvia Mitchell-Meristem Tip Method
