Artemisia annua L., an important medicinal plant of the family Asteraceae contains an antimalarial, artemisinin. However, the relative low yield (0.01-0.6%) of artemisinin in A. annua greatly limits the commercialization of the drug. This work aimed to apply plant tissue culture techniques for high-frequency shoot regeneration in A. annua. In.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
