 The major lacuna in developing stress-tolerant lines through breeding is the lack of suitable techniques for screening the segregating population. We report here the development of an efficient technique for identifying high-temperature-tolerant lines in sunflower. The rationale behind this technique is that the stress-responsive genes are expressed during(More)
Stress-tolerant crops are expected to express genes not normally expressed in susceptible crops. We have used desiccation stress coupled with high light intensity to identify groundnut as a relatively tolerant crop. Stress-responsive genes (Gdi, Groundnut Desiccation Induced) were cloned by subtractive hybridisation. The sequence of Gdi-15 shows homology to(More)
