Thesis Title: Molecular and Physiological Evaluation of Wheat Cultivars for Drought Tolerance.
Biotic and abiotic stresses such as drought (water deficit), excessive watering (water-logging/flooding), extreme temperatures (cold, frost and heat), salinity (sodicity) and mineral (metal and metalloid) continuously threaten plants and it is becoming critical to recognize how plants protect themselves. The overall goal of my research is to reveal the physiological and molecular mechanisms involved in plant stress tolerance.
