Tissue Culture for Cannabis

Prepared by Damon Lippert April 2019

 For thousands of years, farmers planted seeds to continue lines of crops. At many times around the world people discovered the process of artificial pollination (probably by watching bees!). This hand pollination allowed us to develop many of the food crops we use today from humble beginnings. We discovered grafting a branch from one type of apple tree onto another with worse fruit allowed us to have the kind of apples we wanted.

The Secrets of Genetics: Phenotypes

This month in our ongoing Secrets of Genetics we are going to explore Phenotypes.

Any organism has two copies of a given gene, but only uses one (mostly, it gets complicated). The whole map of all the genes is called a genotype, but the map of what genes are turned on and off, and when that happens, is called the phenotype. A given strain may have the capability to smell of oranges, but if that gene isn’t turned on and expressed it may just smell of hay. When a strain or organism has two identical copies then the genotype and phenotype can be extremely similar.

Aeroponics is a promising method of growing many types of plants. The central feature of the aeroponics system is the lack of a growing medium like soil, or sterile media used in hydroponics; instead the roots are regularly misted with a low-to-high concentration of nutrients in water.
