In this project we will use a variety of “-omics” approaches to study the molecular mechanisms used by several species of resurrection plants to withstand extreme drought. This knowledge will be subsequently translated to economically important crops. The ultimate goal is to obtain crop varieties which are more resistant to water deficit by breeding and other non-GMO technologies.
