Research Project

Researchers: Malachy Campbell (Principal investigator) ,  Associate Professor Harkamal Walia (Principal investigator)

Brief description

A rice diversity panel consisting of 373 accessions (Zhao et al 2011, http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/ncomms1467) was exposed to 90 mM NaCl during the early tillering stage (8 days after transplanting). The salt treatment was applied in two steps of 45 mM at 10 and 13 days after transplanting. To assess natural variation for salinity tolerance, morphological and physiological responses were monitored over a period of 14 d after 90 mM NaCl treatment. The experiment was replicated three times from August to October 2013. Campbell et al. (2015) http://dx.doi.org/10.1104/pp.15.00450
