Engineering salinity tolerance in rice by exogenous expression of cell death regulators

Hoang, Thi My Linh (2014) Engineering salinity tolerance in rice by exogenous expression of cell death regulators. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

Rice, an important crop that feeds more than half of the world's population is very sensitive to salinity stress – a growing problem affecting crop production globally. This PhD study addressed this problem by manipulating the programmed cell death pathways in rice resulting in significant enhancement of salinity stress tolerance. The impact of this work is that farmers would be in a position to grow rice containing such a trait in environments where salinisation of the soil exists, thereby addressing food security needs.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
