Project: Analysius of ozone sensitivity of tomato and genetic engineering of enhanced ozone tolerance in tomato.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-99 – 31-DEC-00
- This project compares the ozone sensitivity of different tomato cultivars and uses this information to estimate yield losses in European tomato cultivation due to ozone stress. In a second part, studies are undertaken to elucidate the molecular basis of ozone sensitivity in tomato and strategies are developed to reduce ozone sensitivity in tomato by genetic engineering.
