M. J. Plewa

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The plant cell/microbe coincubation assay is a sensitive and flexible assay for use in screening for plant-mediated promutagens as well as in basic mutation research. By using plant cell cultures of crop plants, xenobiotics used in agriculture can be evaluated for their mutagenic properties.
