    Abiotic stress and genome dynamics: specific genes and transposable elements response to iron excess in rice

    Iron toxicity is a root related abiotic stress, occurring frequently in flooded soils. It can affect the yield of rice in lowland production systems. This toxicity is associated with high concentrations of red...
