Abstract

This chapter discusses the gene expression under stress tolerance and in the absence of stress tolerance at seed priming and drying. An experimental model set up using cabbage seeds of different physiological qualities is described. The topics discussed include: effects of priming on germination rate and storability; sensitivity to ultra-drying; seed maturity; and gene expression studies using cDNA microarrays.
