App developed to make potato resilient to climate change

Ljubljana – A team of researchers at Slovenia’s National Institute of Biology (NiB) has presented StressKnowledgeMap, an app that will help potato breeders develop more weather stress-resistant potato varieties. The app brings together the world’s knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of plant stress responses and organises it into complex functional networks, the NiB said. Information on genes involved in the stress response has been integrated into the app alongside mRNAs and the translation of mRNAs into proteins that have a function in the plant response. The researchers, led by Kristina…
