Molecular responses to abiotic stress and the development of drought tolerance in plants
Water availability is a major limiting factor in the yield of agricultural crops in marginal rainfall areas. One solution is the development of crops that are drought tolerant, either through traditional breeding or genetic engineering. To permit a targeted approach to developing drought tolerance, the molecular basis of drought tolerance must first be elucidated. Previously in our group, a forward genetics screen was undertaken to identify mutants, in the model plant species Arabidopsis...[Show more]
