Callus

A thickening or swelling of a stem or leaf stalk, in some cases a relic of an organ or connection that has almost disappeared in the course of evolution. Also used for cuttings, being the spongy mass of cells that precedes root development at the cut end, and in tissue culture for the similar mass of cells that first develops.
