Genetic mechanisms detailed that govern drought response in crops

This research could help plant breeders develop varieties that feature improved stress tolerance.

New research from Iowa State University scientist Yanhai Yin identifies a genetic mechanism that governs growth and drought tolerance in plants -- a development that could lead to better-performing traits in crops.

Yin, a professor of genetics, development and cell biology and a Plant Sciences Institute faculty scholar, said the biological processes that oversee plant growth and drought response often clash with one another. Yin said scientists have long observed the tendency of plant
