Plant cell and organ cultures are potential sources of valuable secondary metabolites that can be used as food additives, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, and pharmaceuticals. Phytochemical biosynthesis in various in vitro plant cultures, in contrast to that in planta, is independent of environmental conditions and free from quality fluctuations.
Pharmaceutical application of plant biotechnology is of interest to almost all departments of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Institute of Pharmacology in Poland with a botanical profile (Pharmaceutical Botany, Pharmacognosy, and Pharmacology).
This study discusses the advances in plant biotechnology for the production of known metabolites and/or biosynthesis of novel compounds in plant cell and organ in vitro cultures in several scientific centers in Poland.
