Talk title and synopsis
Novel regulatory mechanisms in plant tolerance to abiotic stress
Understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying plant responses to abiotic stress is important from both basic and practical points of view. In my talk, I will present results on a novel regulatory pathway that mediates abiotic stress tolerance in Arabidopsis.
