I would like information within the next few days if possible about the 
protocols for culturing Taxus cells to produce taxol.  The information is 
to be used for an undergraduate seminar on Production of Valuable 
secondary Metabolites by Cell Culture.  I've searched everywhere but 
can't find specifics about the process.  For example, if bioreactors are 
used or if the process is developed to that extent yet.  If this material 
is secret I would still appreciate some general information about cell 
isolation, tissue source, specific species cultured, etc..  
Thank you in advance, f if you can be of assista.

Could you e-mail the info. rather than replying via this forum.
