Project Outline:

The project determined variation in salinity tolerance and protein levels in mungbean germplasm. The project also developed a protocol for quick screening plant materials for salinity tolerance through in-vitro culture.

Fellowship Experience:

During 3 months on the fellowship, Ms Hang obtained great opportunities both in development of professional career and connection with other researchers. Ms Hang had learnt new methodology and skills for in-vitro culture and seed nutrition analysis. She met students and research staff at Center for Tropical Crops and Biocommodities that she learnt useful biotechnology skills from and built connection. Various activities were also included such as lab group meeting, field trip  and workshop. She also enjoyed Australia’s nature.
