Wheat is one of the most important food crops in the world, however, its production has been seriously impacted by hotter weather. In this study, developed wheat germplasms were utilized to associate genotypic data from single-nucleotide-polymorphism (SNP) array and phenotypic data on diverse traits at both seedling and adult stages under heat treatment. A positive relationship of heat tolerance between seedling and adult stages was established and a number of quantitative traits loci (QTL) with their associated genes were identified and/or validated. The findings extended our understanding of the genetic mechanism of heat tolerance in wheat.
