Dear Dr. Sanket Thakur,

This msg is in connetion with your invitation to chit chat on Tissue culture of J. curcas. In fact I have been associated with this plant since last two and half years. I have included this plant for my Ph.D. work alongwith other plant species. This being the most difficult plant to deal with for in vitro propagation, I had encountered some basic difficulties in obtaining rooting. When contacted some experts, the reason expressed as genotypic dependency. If you have any protocol for root induction please send me so that I can further my researach in this line. I require to know where exactly the segmentation is to be made for inducing rooting i.e. nodal regions (upper or middle or lower part of the nodes) or internodal regions. Please interact and help me this regard and I'll be grateful to you. If you have any publications,please send me some.
