This SOL Seminar Online will be presented by Muhammad Adil on Production of high valued medicinal compounds using plant cell tissue and organ culture

Abstract. Today’s market demand for natural products is higher and the conventional practices to get the herbs from wild or cultivate in fields are inefficient to meet the market demand. The alternative approaches such as plant tissue organ and cell cultures (PTOC) are believed to be the promising and inexpensive. The PTOC approach offers the opportunity to sustain the standardized natural products of uniform quality and ensures to be free of agrochemicals, toxins or other environmental pollutant. Number of studies using in-vitro tissue culture approaches have extensively been studied and adopted for uniform and continuous supply of the natural products. There are companies taking advantages of this technology which offers the opportunity to produce medicinal compounds continuously and in limited space rather than cultivating on hectares of land. Despite these advantages the PTOC system needs optimization and there are factors which regulates plant cell machinery to process primary metabolites for the secondary metabolites (medicinal compounds) production. These factors are plant growth regulators (PGRs), substrate type and concentration, light condition, elicitors and precursors feeding. Additionally, the bioreactor design also plays important role to ensure the large scale production using plant cells and organs cultures.
