Drought is one of the most frequent abiotic stresses limiting the productivity and geographical distribution of sugarcane culture. The use of drought-tolerant genotypes is one approach for overcoming the effects of water stress. We conducted a comparative study to identify gene expression profiles under water stress in tolerant sugarcane roots. Two different cultivars, 1 drought tolerant (RB867515) and 1 drought susceptible (SP86-155), were evaluated at 4 sampling time points (1, 3, 5, and 10 days) using the cDNA-amplified fragment length polymorphism technique.
