suspension cultures. What is the problem with the published procedures?
Ferl & Laughner (Plant Mol. Biol. 12, 357-366, 1989) reported the

callus on MS containing 0.5 mg/L 2,4-D, then transferring the callus to liquid
culture which were subcultured each six days. I saw these cultures and they
were very fine suspensions. Chris
