Title: DROUGHT RESISTANCE MULTIGENE CONSTRUCT
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a polygenic DNA construct consisting of three abiotic stress tolerance genes, separated by nucleic acids encoding FMDV 2A peptides under the control of a stress inducible promoter. The stable insertion of the construct into plants confers drought tolerance to the plants. The invention also provides for vectors, host cells, transgenic plants and transgenic seeds containing the construct.
