Plant tissue culture (PTC) technology has gained unassailable success for its various commercial and research applications in plant sciences. Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are an essential part of any plant tissue culture intervention for propagation or modification of plants. A wide range of PGRs are available, including aromatic compounds that show cytokinin activities, promote cell division and micro-propagation, viz. kinetin, N6-benzyladenine and topolins. Topolins are naturally occurring aromatic compounds that have gained popularity as an effective alternative for other frequently used cytokinins in in vitro culture of plants. Among them, meta-topolin [6-(3-hydroxybenzlyamino) purine] is the most popular and its use in plant tissue culture has amplified swiftly. During the last few decades, there have been numerous reports highlighting the effectiveness of meta-topolin in micropropagation and alleviation of various physiological disorders, rooting and acclimatization of tissue culture raised plants.

Dr. Naseem Ahmad is working as Assistant Professor in the D/o Botany, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh. He has also worked as a Young Scientist and has more than 10 years of experience in Plant Tissue Culture and Molecular Biology. Published about 44 research papers, 02 edited Books entitled “Plant Tissue Culture:Propagation, Conservation and Crop Improvement” (Springer;2016); Thidiazuron: From Urea Derivative to Plant Growth Regulator (Springer, 2018). He holds Life Membership of many Learned/ Scientific Societies and is a fellow of Indian Botanical Society (FBS). He is recipient of “Yuva Vaigiyanik Samman (2009), CST, UP; Young Scientist (2010) by NESA, N. Delhi, Rashtriya Gaurav Award (2015) by IIFS, N. Delhi, Young Scientist (2015) by IFEE, Kolkata and Prof. Hira Lal Chakravarty Award (2019) by ISCA, Kolkata (India). He was also a Senior Research Fellow (SRF) of CSIR, N. Delhi.

Prof. Miroslav Strnad is head in the joined Laboratory of Growth Regulators, Institute of Experimental Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences & Palacký University in Olomouc, Czech Republic ( Strnad’s current focus is on the research and development of a new generation of compounds with anti-viral, anti-proliferative, anti-angiogenic and anti-senescence properties, the molecular mechanisms of their action and the potential combinatory therapies based on these compounds, new phytohormone derived cosmetic as well as plant growth regulators for plant biotechnology and agriculture. He graduated in Phytotechnology from the Faculty of Agronomy, Mendel University, Brno, in 1982 (Ing.). In 2^ 12 500; Hirsch index: 56). He was PSE president (2014-2016), since 2018 vice-president.
