Identification and characterization of a tomato introgression line with reduced wilting under drought

Zsögön, Agustin

Description

Population growth and climate change pose a serious challenge to food supply. Agriculture is the biggest consumer of freshwater in the world. With widespread water scarcity and expected changes in rainfall patterns, both boosting plant yield using the same amount of water and increasing the survival and yield of crops under drought are top priorites for plant biologists. The understanding of genetic and physiological mechanisms controlling water-use efficiency (WUE) and of plant resistance to...[Show more]
