To identify the protein and genetic changes during hidden hunger, and using this information, develop a technique that growers can use to test their plants for specific and/or general nutrient deficiencies.
Proteomics techniques (i.e., identification of proteins of interest by 2-D gel analysis, followed by protein sequencing) will be used to screen for global differences in protein expression between stressed (nutrient, drought) and non-stressed plants.
