SimInAria: Wild Wheat Potential for Wheat Crop Adaptation to Climate Change.

Venerdì 15 febbraio 2019 ore 11:00, Bologna - Viale Silvani 6, aula 3, piano terra
Harnessing Wild Wheat Potential to Enhance Wheat Adaptation to Climate Change

Summary

Wild emmer wheat, the progenitor of durum and bread wheat, exhibited wide genetic
diversity and greater drought adaptation compared to domesticated wheat. Drought-
adaptive genomic regions from wild emmer wheat enhanced drought resistance in
modern wheat cultivars. Wild emmer wheat, as well as other crop wild relatives, offer a
remarkable potential to enhance crop resilience to climate change, thereby facilitating
agricultural sustainability and food security.
