Abstract: The Glycyrrhiza glabra, of the Fabaceae family, is a medicinal and edible herbs that contain a wide range of phytochemicals which are used pharmaceutically and commercially. Glycyrrhiza glabra is under the threat of overexploitation and depletion therefore, there is an urgent need for conservation. It is advantageous to develop in vitro techniques not only for propagation, multiplication and preservation but also for elicitation of secondary metabolite production. The present study provides information on the micropropagation of G. glabra related to the use of different explants, the combination of plant growth regulators with different sterilization strategies, the culture conditions, and additional factors influencing in vitro propagation (such as light, temperature, humidity and pH). Conservation of germplasm from G. glabra, through encapsulation have also been studied which avail the germplasm for commercial cultivation over the long run. Qualitative and quantitative screening for phytoconstituents and the evaluation of their antimicrobial activity have also been presented. Enhanced production of glycyrrhizin, main bioactive component of G. glabra by different elicitors is deliberated. Successful multiplication and elicitation will lead to the production of not only greater quantities of planting material with improved quality but also commercially desired metabolites. This study will be helpful in future studies on somaclonal variation, genetic transformation and drug discovery.
