Tissue culture of Ipomoea batatas: Micropopagation and maintainance

Tissue culture allows the rapid clonal propagation of a large number of plantlets over a short period, as well as the maintenance of germplasm under controlled conditions in small spaces and with reduced labor requirements. This document describes the advantages, methodologies and materials used for tissue culture at the International Potato Center. it analyzes isolation, micropropagation and long term storage techniques.
