In order to enhance crop resistance to adverse environmental conditions, the aim of the project is to understand the mechanisms of resistance to abiotic and biotic factors through the identification and functional analysis of candidate genes. Snakin/GASA proteins are widely distributed among plant species and are involved in various aspects of plant growth and development. However, the exact role played by these proteins is still intriguing. In this context, we decided to determine the involvement of different GASA genes of Arabidopsis thaliana in plant development under optimal and suboptimal environmental conditions using the automated platform PHENOPSIS.
