Abiotic stress signaling in plants: functional genomic intervention

Basic plant science has never been more important than in the current scenario of climate change and increasing human population. To address the global challenges like increase in food production and raising stress tolerant crop varieties the

Genetic modification for crop improvement

Genetic modification (GM) of crops involves the transfer of genes for specific traits between distantly related plant species using recombinant DNA technology known as transgenesis. Besides, crops can also be modified by silencing or overexpressing its endogenous

Chemical priming: a way to increase plant protection against stress conditions in the field?

Abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought, flooding, heat, cold, freezing, excess light, UV radiation and heavy metal toxicity have a significant impact on plant growth and crop yield worldwide. Climate change continues to exacerbate the detrimental effects
