Summary

Plants are static in nature and, therefore, they encounter a number of biotic and abiotic stress factors during their life cycle. Plants' responses to these stress factors are differential and complex. Since the past decade, “omics” technologies are providing the major clues for understanding plant stress response mechanisms important for crop improvement. This chapter will critically evaluate the current literature on the plant transcriptomics and proteomics for understanding plant stress responses in detail in addition to the basic concept, principles, and procedure outlines of these approaches, and will also suggest important future perspectives.
