A recent trend in global climate patterns and limited natural resources affects the food supply worldwide. Therefore, to secure sustainable food production, plants must be able to acclimatize to extreme environments. Recently, the incorporation of microorganism’s genes into plants through genetic modification to improve their performance has been gaining interest as one of the eco-friendly solutions. Since the database of Trichoderma spp. genomes are readily available, many genes such as heat shock, glucosidase with Kelch repeat domain, aquaglyceroporins, and glutathione transferase have been identified and characterized. These genes have shown promising results in helping plants to tolerate various extreme environments.
