Identifying the physiological and genetic traits related to drought tolerance in cassava.

Abstract

This project aims to determine the best traits to be used in breeding programs for drought tolerance by elucidating the mechanisms of cassava's remarkable tolerance to drought and to identify trait-marker associations for the development of a more cost-effective breeding process for drought tolerance that can be used for cassava and other crops.
