Transformation of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) with a dehydrin gene for improved drought resistance


From 02/2002 to 07/2007

Principal Investigator: Tribikram Bhattarai

In this project, the first step was to establish reliable and effective protocols for chickpea transformation. After this, a dehydrin gene from chickpea will be overexpressed to improve drought resistance.
