Abstract

This publication constitutes a collection of scientific papers on the subject of Bacterial and Bacteria-like Contaminants of Plant Tissue Cultures'' presented and discussed during a workshop held in CORK (IRL) on 23-25 September 1987, organised by the Directorate General of Agriculture of the Commission of the European Communities as part of the research programme on Plant Productivity. The Symposium was organised to provide a forum for the discussion of problems associated with the contamination of plant tissue cultures by bacterial and bacteria-like agents in relation to the production of healthy plants. The Convener sought to bring together plant bacteriologists and tissue culturists and to address such issues as detection and identification of bacterial and bacteria-like contaminants, their effects on culture performance and measures to overcome their effects either by escape, prophylaxis or chemotherapy. The Proceedings contribute to the development of strategies to deal with this potential threat to commercial micropropagation.
