How plants transmit signals through alternate routes during stress conditions? CBL-CIPK mediated calcium signaling
One of the main characteristics of a plant life is sessile nature. Plants counter this frailty by evolving intricate and fast signaling system that can help in transferring stimuli at a very high rate. The phytohormone ABA
Man has been struggling to understand and define life since the day he became aware of it. Innumerable philosophies and findings over the history of mankind together draw the perspective with which we look at life today.
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 (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
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
