The article discusses a study by researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln which found that plants subjected to a previous period of drought learn to adapt to dehydration stress. The researchers compared the reaction of stressed plants to those not previously stressed. The study indicated the potential of plants to remember their transcriptional response to stress due to chromatin changes. The researchers expect the study results to lead to crop breeding or engineering.
