Hairy roots are plant roots that have been genetically transformed and can be cultured on a large scale to replace whole plants for investigating plant secondary metabolism and its genetic manipulation, producing foreign proteins, propagating plants in agriculture, environmental research, and developing new engineering technology for the large-scale production of plant chemicals. The 21 papers cover culture and synthesis, plant propagation, and environmental and bioprocessing aspects. They include detailed instructions for experimental procedures and review recent developments with an emphasis on the cross-disciplinary nature of the research and the direction of future developments.
