Grains Industry Research Scholarship - Peter Crisp (ANU) Gene regulation in plant adaptation to stressful environments and drought conditions

Plain text source: 
PAP signals a survival advantage during water deficit in Arabidopsis plants During 2010 I have continued working towards my PhD, researching the molecular and biochemical mechanisms plants use to adapt to low water availability and drought... In our research group we have been studying a subtle mutation in Arabidopsis (a close relative of Canola) that may have important implications for drought resistance in many crops... The focus of my research is to determine if and how this chemical assists plants to adapt to water deficit or confer drought tolerance...
