Wild Barley Genetic Variation Involved in Adaptation

Barley graphs small

Study objective:

Transcriptome sequencing of differentially adapted wild barley ecotypes from contrasting environments contributes to the identification of genes and genetic variation involved in abiotic stress tolerance and adaptation.

Study Results:

The desert ecotype lost more water under both irrigation and drought, but exhibited higher relative water content (RWC) and better water use efficiency (WUE, measured by Plantarray) than the coastal ecotype.
