NOVELTY – Production of genetically modified plants involves obtaining a vector (SEQ ID NO: 1) in which a promoter and terminator are linked. The vector with promoter and terminator are inserted in the genome of a plant cell. (Sequences not defined here may be found at ftp://ftp.wipo.int/pub/published_pct_sequences/publication). USE – Method for production of genetically modified plants and seeds for tolerating environmental stresses such as drought and saline conditions (all claimed). ADVANTAGE – The method enables to produce drought resistant cultivars. DETAILED DESCRIPTION – An INDEPENDENT CLAIM is also included for a recombinant DNA vector such as expression vector, plasmid or cloning vector for producing polypeptide (SEQ ID NO: 2).
