Title: Can chilling tolerance of C 4 photosynthesis in Miscanthus be transferred to sugarcane?

Our goal is to investigate whether chilling tolerance of C 4 photosynthesis in Miscanthus can be transferred to sugarcane by hybridization. Net leaf CO 2 uptake (A sat) and we measured the maximum operating efficiency of photosystem II (Ф PSII) in warm conditions (25 °C/20 °C), and then during and following a chilling treatment of 10 °C/5 °C for 11 day in controlled environment chambers.
