The Plant Tissue Culture Association of India (PTCA (I)), constituted in the year 1976, is an elite body of Plant Tissue Culture Scientists. The association today is made up of 90 pioneer members.
The annual meeting of the association invites aspirants to membership. Selected aspirants are required to make a presentation and new members are selected through the votes of the members present at the meeting. The meeting of the association is coupled to a three-day symposium on a theme related to plant tissue culture to which nearly 400 delegates are invited. This event thus brings together not only PTCA members, but also the members of the academia, industry and research institutions, to present and exchange achievements and views in plant tissue culture.
