Abstract

Comparative physiological analysis of lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) cultivars in response to salt stress and cloning of NnCIPK genes.

Saline or salt water in the ocean accounts for 96.5% of total fresh water resource in the planet. Salinity is a global social and economic problem which severely inhibited plant growth and development. Utilization of marginal salt affected land and/or water resource becomes increasingly important...
