Cannabis Tissue Culture
October 20 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Plant tissue culture is a group of methods in which plant fragments, seeds, or individual cells may be used to propagate genetically identical offspring. Although not new to the plant sciences, tissue culture has been rapidly gaining popularity in the cannabis sector due to its ability to produce large numbers of identical plants under sterile laboratory conditions.
The cannabis industry is bringing in a lot of career opportunities to the Canadian market and is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing sectors in Canada. The rapid growth of tissue culture in the cannabis industry means there is a need for knowledgeable individuals to work in the managerial and technical roles. This workshop will give attendees a comprehensive look into tissue culture and its applications in cannabis production. Topics will include:
Introduction to tissue culture in plants
Techniques in tissue culture
Designing a tissue culture lab that suits your goals and budget
