From the reviews:

"... this book is a must for all people working with tobacco BY-2 cells." (Journal of Plant Physiology)

"This book … is a past due summary of a huge body of data about the tobacco BY-2 cell culture. The tobacco BY-2 cell line has acquired a unique position in plant science, and more than 500 papers have been published … . this book is a must for all people working with tobacco BY-2 cells." (Katja Hartig, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 162, 2005)
