Plant Cell Biotechnology
Plant in vitro technologies are considered as an attractive and cost-effective alternative to classical approaches (i.e., natural harvest and chemical synthesis) for the mass production of value-added plant-derived metabolites (“green factories” concept). Genetic modification in such a contained system can readily be applied without the regulatory barriers associated with field grown crops. Moreover, cell/tissue culture systems can be up-scaled in bioreactors with controllable bioproduction rates. The department closely interacts with the other CPSBB research Departments to better understand the plant biochemical machinery and to developm new means for sustainable bioproduction of high value molecules.
