Recommended Conferences for Stress Tolerance

Stress Tolerance

As per available reports about 25 Open Access Journals, 20 Conferences, 90 open access articles are presently dedicated exclusively stress tolerance and about 46 conference proceedings are being published on stress tolerance.

Scientists have been able to identify several plant genes that are involved with stress tolerance. Some of these genes code for antioxidants, enzymes that modify lipids in the cell membrane, stress-response transcription factors, proteins that maintain ion homeostasis, heat shock proteins, or enzymes that synthesis important stress-response compounds. Some of these factors have been used to produce transgenic plants with increased stress tolerance.

OMICS International:
OMICS International is an Open Access Publications group which organizes International scientific conferences worldwide. This can be achieved through the support of 700 Open Access Journals, 50000 Editorial team, 1000 more scientific societies 21 Days rapid review process with valuable 3.5 Million readers conducting 300 scientific conferences per year.
In this way OMICS International Conferences are engraved to the marks of success in open access publishing & also in organizing scientific events. The OMICS International event participants are typically high-level decision makers representing various parts of the industry and many participants are repeaters who know each other.
Conferences and Symposiums of OMICS International enlightens your research path by gathering scientific professionals from across the globe to discuss the recent scientific discoveries done followed by the interactive sessions through B2B meetings and scientific partnering. The importance and significance of OMICS International Conferences can be gauged by the fact that it has made huge advancements over the course of time and is continuing to influence various sectors.

Drought tolerance:
Water is crucial for all living things. Plants use water as a solvent, a transport medium, an evaporative coolant, physical support, and as a major ingredient for photosynthesis. Without sufficient water, agriculture is impossible. Therefore, drought tolerance is an extremely important agricultural trait. One way of engineering drought tolerance is by taking genes from plants that are naturally drought tolerant and introducing them to crops. The ressurection plant (Xerophyta viscosa), a native of dry regions of southernmost Africa, possesses a gene for a unique protein in its cell membrane. Experiments have shown that plants given this gene are less prone to stress from drought and excess salinity. Some genes have been found that control the production of the thin, protective cuticle found on leaves. If crops can be grown with a thickened waxy cuticle, they could be better equipped for dealing with dryness.

Salt tolerance:
Irrigation has enabled the transformation of arid regions into some of the world's most productive agricultural areas. Excess salinity, however, is becoming a major problem for agriculture in dry parts of the world. In several cases, scientists have used biotechnology to develop plants with enhanced tolerance to salty conditions. Researchers have noticed that plants with high tolerance to salt stress possess naturally high levels of a substance called glycinebetaine. Further, plants with intermediate levels of salinity tolerance have intermediate levels, and plants with poor tolerance to salinity have little or none at all. Genetically modified tomatoes with enhanced glycinebetaine production have increased tolerance to salty conditions. Another approach to engineering salt tolerance uses a protein that takes excess sodium and diverts it into a cellular compartment where it does not harm the cell. In the lab, this strategy was used to create test plants that were able to flower and produce seeds under extreme salt levels. Commercially available crops with such a modification are still several years away. The “abiotic” stress factors include drought, heat and cold and soil salinity. These factors are responsible for the sometimes dramatic yield losses in many regions of the world. Bayer CropScience is responding to these challenges with a chemical and a biological approach.

Oxidative Stress in Plants:
Reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI) are toxic byproducts of oxygen reduction, continuously produced in cells during normal metabolism or stress. They play an important role in many signaling events related to biotic or abiotic stresses, programmed cell death, and hormonal action. Although our understanding of ROI metabolism in plants has considerably advanced in recent years, very little is known about the signal transduction pathway(s) associated with ROI sensing in cells. In my laboratory we study different Arabidopsis mutants, and transgenic tobacco plants, deficient in ROI scavenging genes. We are using Affymetrix chips and other molecular techniques to study gene expression in these plants and to identify different signal transduction components involved in ROI sensing in plants. I also collaborate with different labs to perform a proteomic analysis of oxidized proteins.
