Plant cell and tissue culture in vitro is a collection of techniques used to maintain or grow plant cells, tissues or organs under sterile conditions on a nutrient culture medium of known composition. Plants cells, cultured in vitro, are able to regenerate into the complete fertile plants under the appropriate culture and environment conditions, e.g. plant cells are totipotent. Currently, plant cell and tissue culture in vitro has not only the great tool in basic research, such as cell biology, genetics, biochemistry and biotechnology, but has also the direct commercial importance in the mass propagation, production of doubled haploids, secondary metabolites, genetic transformation, etc.

International Conference "Plants In Vitro: Theory and Practice" to be held in Vienna on February 8-10, 2016 in Vienna, Austria  will discuss wide range of modern in vitro plant cell and organ culture technologies, fundamental aspects of plant cell totipotency and practical applications of in vitro technologies for crop improvement.

Vienna is located in the heart of Europe on the banks of the Danube River, and considered as one of the most important economic, cultural and touristic large cities of central Europe. Apart from providing top science, the Conference will capture the spirit of the city thanks to the central location of the venue offering a multitude of cultural events.

This three-day event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in "Plants In Vitro: Theory and Practice", and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.

The International Conference "Plants In Vitro: Theory and Practice" will cover the following research topics:

• Plant Cell Totipotency
• Organogenesis, Morphogenesis & Regeneration In Vitro
• Somatic Embryogenesis
• Anther/Microspore Cultures (Androgenesis)
• Ovary/Ovule Cultures (Gynogenesis)
• Plant Cell Suspensions
• Plant Cell Bioreactors
• Protoplasts
• Micropropagation
• In vitro fertilization
• Plant Transformationce
