Abstract

This thesis integrated transcriptomics, proteomics, and genome-wide association studies to explorethe genetic and molecular basis of drought tolerance. Key findings included identification of sixcandidate genes and five proteins involved in diverse biological pathways associated with droughttolerance. GWAS analysis revealed DNA markers and genetic factors associated with droughttolerance, with 44 unique candidate genes found across 17 wheat chromosomes, particularly on 2Aand 3B. These genes played diverse roles in plant growth, development, and stress responses,offering a valuable resource for future investigation. This comprehensive study offers insights forbreeding drought-tolerant wheat.
