Plant cloning. Plant being cut up by a scalpel for cloning by micropropagation. Each of the fragments from the "parent" plant will be placed in a sterile gel which acts as a soil-substitute. Carefully-controlled conditions cause the fragments to develop into embryos, which then produce roots and shoots like normal seedlings. The technique allows mass agricultural production of genetically identical plants and is an effective way of propagating any genes introduced into the parent plant.
