This study explores the key role of molecular marker assisted selection in wheat stress resistance breeding. Wheat is one of the most important food crops in the world, but it faces challenges from climate change and stress, which affect yield and quality. Molecular marker technology provides a powerful tool for wheat breeding, allowing for more efficient selection of stress resistance genes. This study introduces the importance of wheat as a food crop, as well as the relationship between stress resistance and wheat breeding. Explored different types of DNA markers and their applications in wheat stress resistance breeding, including marker assisted selection, QTL analysis, and gene editing techniques. The study emphasizes the importance of molecular marker strategies and methods to accelerate the identification and breeding of stress resistant genes. Finally, some successful cases of wheat stress resistance breeding were summarized, emphasizing the potential of molecular marker assisted selection and looking forward to future development trends. This study emphasizes the importance of molecular marker technology in wheat stress resistance breeding, providing new hope for food production and food security.
