What is it about?
The diversity of Bangladeshi rice with respect to their ability to tolerate salinity. We also explain about the utility of derived trait values for the prediction of the ability of Bangladeshi rice to fare well under stress.

Why is it important?
The information that we provide about Bangladeshi rice is important for selection of donors for salinity tolerance traits. This is important as many coastal areas are becoming increasingly saline due to sea level rise as a consequence of climate change
