Abiotic stressors like salt and drought are two examples that may harm crop production. Therefore, increasing production and creating stress-tolerant cultivars requires crop innovation in response to these stresses. Whole genome sequence (WGS) data releases are used for crop trait development. Tolerance to abiotic stress cannot be induced through single-gene engineering transformation. Plants like finger millet can be mined for undiscovered genes because they already have the gene in their genomes, but it is dormant. Therefore, abiotic stress-tolerant genes can be expressed in the same plant by RNA sequencing and transcriptomics by creating abiotic stress for agricultural development. New genes can have their profiles refined with the aid of this transcriptome research.

Key words:    Abiotic stress, finger millet, whole genome sequence, RNA sequencing, transcriptomics, gene profiling
