In the course of studies dealing with the Dutch elm disease, it has become apparent that there.is a need for a rapid, efficient screening method for determining disease resistance. Tissue culture is a discipline that is now well accepted in the field of plant physiology, but is a rather new technique in the field of plant pathology. The investigations of diseased tissue, until recently, has been done with the intact plant. This study has investigated the possibility of studying the growth of the fungus on host tissue cultures as a screening technique.
