Project description:
The project aims at morpho-physiological, genetic, and biochemical responses of the grain amaranth (Amaranthus spp.) to heavy metal exposure, whereby able to deliver a valuable information about their phytoextraction potential and the reference to the impact of metals on bio-organics and nutritional quality. Moreover, gene expression analyses of amaranth genes already known to be responders to different abiotic stress types in response to heavy metal stress will contribute to understanding heavy metals-regulated gene expression and regulatory networks. The possible temporary endophytic bacterial diversity changes subjected to heavy metals will be assessed through metagenomic approach.
