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.
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.
