Plant propagation by cloning is becoming increasingly important in food and flower production. Generating a plant by cloning its tissue is an exciting and challenging experience that teaches the importance of sterile laboratory methods. No hood or incubator required. Users will germinate carrot seeds to provide plant material from which to establish a culture, use sterile technique to grow seedlings and establish a callus culture, and induce the development of multiple shoots (plantlets) from the callus tissue. The process takes approximately four months.
