Plant Abiotic Stress

Description

Abiotic stresses caused by diverse environmental factors, such as drought, salinity, and temperature extremes, are the major constraints to plant growth and crop production. The stresses resulted from the extreme weather conditions have frequently leaded to a large production loss all over the world. While traditional strategies to improve abiotic stress tolerance have progressed, a further understanding of the genetic mechanisms underlying the stress adaptation is necessary. The newly developed techniques in the studies of transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics greatly accelerates our understanding of plant stress responses. Moreover, the genetic engineering is much more promising in producing super crops which can survive from such severe stresses.

This issue will cover all aspects of studies involved in plant abiotic stress. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Germplasm and enhancement
  • Crop cultivation
  • Crop genetics and genomics
  • Transcriptomics, Proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics
  • Plant physiology and molecular biology
  • Plant genetic engineering
