Analysis of Sweet Sorghum’s Maintenance of Ion Homeostasis Under Salt Stress

Sweet sorghum effectively manages ion toxicity and maintains key nutrient balances under high salt stress through specific genes and transcription factors, stabilizing the plants during severe salt stress.

WRKY Transcription Factors SbWRKY22 and SbWRKY65 Regulate the Expression of Aluminum Resistance Genes in Sorghum

This pair of Al-stress-induced WRKY TFs are mainly expressed in the roots of sweet sorghum, where they regulate Al tolerance genes involved in citric acid secretion, callose degradation and cell wall modification.

A Dense Genetic Linkage Map and QTL Analysis for Bioenergy-Related Traits in Sweet Sorghum

Harnessing the potential of sweet sorghum as a biofuel crop, advanced genetic mapping with ddRAD-seq reveals ten significant bioenergy-related QTLs, offering a pathway for more effective bioenergy production.
