Key message

Several stable QTL were detected using metaGWAS analysis for different agronomic and quality traits under 26 normal and heat stressed environments.


Heat stress, exacerbated by global warming, has a negative influence on wheat production worldwide and climate resilient cultivars can help mitigate these impacts. Selection decisions should therefore depend on multi-environment experiments representing a range of temperatures at critical stages of development. Here, we applied a meta-genome wide association analysis (metaGWAS) approach to detect stable QTL with significant effects across multiple environments. The metaGWAS was applied to 11 traits scored in 26 trials that were sown at optimal or late times of sowing (TOS1 and TOS2, respectively) at five locations. A total of 2571 unique wheat genotypes (13,959 genotypes across all environments) were included and the analysis conducted on TOS1, TOS2 and both times of sowing combined (TOS1&2). The germplasm was genotyped using a 90 k Infinium chip and imputed to exome sequence level, resulting in 341,195 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). The average accuracy across all imputed SNPs was high (92.4%). The three metaGWAS analyses revealed 107 QTL for the 11 traits, of which 16 were detected in all three analyses and 23 were detected in TOS1&2 only. The remaining QTL were detected in either TOS1 or TOS2 with or without TOS1&2, reflecting the complex interactions between the environments and the detected QTL. Eight QTL were associated with grain yield and seven with multiple traits. The identified QTL provide an important resource for gene enrichment and fine mapping to further understand the mechanisms of gene × environment interaction under both heat stressed and unstressed conditions.
