Minerals or trace elements in small amount are essential nutrients for every plant, but when the internal concentration exceeds the threshold, these essential elements do create phytotoxicity. Plant responses to elemental stresses are very common due to different anthropogenic activities; however it is a complex phenomenon with individual characteristics for various species. To cope up with the situation, a plant produces a group of strategies both in proteomic and genomic level to overcome it. Controlling the metal stress is known to activate a multigene response resulting in the changes in various proteins, which directly affects almost all biological processes in a living cell. Therefore, proteomic and genomic approaches can be useful for elucidating the molecular responses under metal stress. For this, it is tried to provide the latest knowledge and techniques used in proteomic and genomic study during nutritional stress and is represented here in review form.
