Cell culture is the process by which cells are grown under controlled conditions, generally outside of their natural environment. In practice, the term “cell culture” now refers to the culturing of cells derived from multicellular eukaryotes, especially animal cells, in contrast with other types of culture that also grow cells, such as plant tissue culture, fungal culture, and microbiological culture. The historical development and methods of cell culture are closely interrelated to those of tissue culture and organ culture. This book emphasizes on theoretical and practical knowledge of the basic techniques in plant and animal cell culture.
