Previous two to three decades have witnessed Abiotic (temperature, light, water, salt etc.) and Biotic (bacteria, fungi, viruses etc.) stresses in crop plants to be increasing and documented as a severe menace to global food security, making it hard for the plants to endure in such circumstances. With the fast-growing population, it is now mandatory to pace with the yield and productivity accordingly, thus protection of crop plants from the abiotic and biotic stresses is a priority. The expansion of stress-tolerant crops will be significantly profitable for the poor farmers in regions of the globe that are affected by such stresses. Similarly, a number of transcription factors/regulators play crucial roles in plant stress responses. This chapter emphasizes on the genes involved in plant’s response to abiotic and biotic stresses with their molecular mechanisms to summarize the current knowledge and a step further for their better understanding. Such genes need to be properly utilized to generate resistant crop plants for future generations.
