... Aegilops and Triticum species are the most important relatives of bread wheat. Knowledge of genetic diversity in these natural resources can provide an opportunity for future wheat-breeding programs [47]. Despite various studies that have exhibited the excellent breeding potential of these species, their genetic potential is still mainly underutilized [48]. ...
... CRISPR editing strategy has revolutionised bioscience with its ability to correct a broad spectrum of genetic conditions such as cancer, blood diseases (sickle cell, thalassemia), neuro degenerative disorders and even ocular related condition [41]. ...
... Retrotransposons as major generators of genetic diversity and tools for detecting the genomic changes created by their large and stable insertions in the genome have been widely applied in plant genetic studies [34,58]. The IRAP and REMAP methods are two common retrotransposon-based markers that were first implemented in barley for fingerprinting and biodiversity studies [50,59]. ...
... However, these effects on grain quality may vary among the genotypes. For instance, Li et al. 27 reported that the protein content of durum wheat genotypes, namely Banamichi, Samayoa, Jupare, Aconchi, Cocorit, Rio Colorado, and CMH83.2578, declined by 2.1, 1.8, 0.4, 0.41, 2.16, 4.73, and 1.52%, respectively, and increased in Yavaros (+0.86%) and Mohawk (+2.79%) under heat stress (due to late sowing), showing the differential behavior of wheat genotypes in response to grain protein. ...
... On the other hand, molecular markers offer important information about genetic structure and phylogenetic relationships among different plant species genetic similarities and differences between the genotypes [17]. Various molecular methods including Random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD) [18], Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) [19], amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) [20], inter retroelement amplified polymorphisms (IRAP) [21], retrotransposonmicrosatellite amplified polymorphism (REMAP) [22], TRAP [23], inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) [24], Simple sequence repeats (SSR) [25], chloroplast simple sequence repeats (cpSSRs) [26], expressed sequence tag (EST) [27], expressed sequence tag-Simple Sequence Repeat (EST-SSR) [28], short interspersed element (SINE) [29], start codon targeted (SCoT) [23], CAAT-box derived polymorphism (CBDP) [30], Diversity Array Technology (DArTseq) [31] and Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) [32] have been used to assess genetic diversity and relationships between several ancestral and wild relatives of wheats.

... This could be achieved using plant materials derived via androgenesis, as any double haploid originates via doubling haploid genome (Ohnoutkova et al. 2019;Sarao and Gosal 2018). However, tissue cultures can induce different variation levels depending on the genotype (Yu et al. 2011), explant source (Krishna et al. 2016), regeneration method (Dey et al. 2015;Saravanan et al. 2011;Smulders and de Klerk 2011) and media ingredients (Rodríguez López et al. 2004;Shooshtari et al. 2018). The so-called pre-existing variation also may affect shared variation levels among regenerants (Evans et al. 1984;Karp 1994). ...
