Past efforts to improve plant tolerance to drought, high salinity and low-temperature through breeding and genetic engineering have had limited success owing to the genetic complexity of stress responses. Progress is now anticipated through comparative genomics studies of an evolutionarily diverse set of model organisms, and through the use of techniques such as high-throughput analysis of expressed sequence tags, large-scale parallel analysis of gene expression, targeted or random mutagenesis… CONTINUE READING
