Genetic engineering for stress tolerance in the Triticeae

Genetic engineering for stress tolerance in the Triticeae

Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Section B, Biological Sciences 99(3-4): 89-106

Genetic variation within a crop species is often limited and restricts improvement by conventional breeding methods. This is particularly true for environmental stresses, both biotic and abiotic. Wild relatives of crop plants, however, provide a rich source of novel variation which can be introduced into the crop. Many alien genes for biotic stress resistance have already been introduced into crops; in contrast, the genetic control of abiotic stress tolerance is poorly understood.
