Aim

Salinity stress is one of the most significant limiting factors in agricultural crop productivity. Hence, improving salt tolerance in crops is essential for sustainable food production. To identify key genes in the regulation of salt tolerance in the mangrove plant Bruguiera gymnorhiza, we are performing transcriptional and physiological study of the response of the mangrove to salt stress.
