Project description

Phytohormones are not only integral to plant growth and development, but also play a key role in defense against biotic stresses. This project aims to advance our fundamental understanding of the function of abscisic acid, ethylene and gibberellic acid in rice defence against various leaf pathogens exhibiting diverse parasitic habits
