By: Kansas State University

By knowing the genetic code of wild emmer, scientists can now compare its’ DNA to modern varieties to fully understand how wheat has evolved over thousands of years. With that information, they can better understand the genes that provide important traits such as drought and heat tolerance, or resistance to various diseases and pests.
