Leaf senescence is
highly complex and regulated process. In the last two decade, the main
focus of research has been on expression of senescence associates genes
(SAGs) as well as on the identification of senescence mutants. Analysis
of these is to expand our understanding of the processes by which
senescence functions. Presently the advances in genomics are providing
scientists with a amazing array of tools for the identification and
functional analysis of the genes and pathways involved in senescence. In
this review, we have given general idea about leaf senescence process.
