Technical Abstract: Rising temperatures and water shortages are resulting in changes in rice production practices that necessitate exploration of key breeding traits that will identify environment-resilient cultivars. The genetic control (G) involved in abiotic/biotic stress tolerance is more complex because this is a quantitatively inherited trait involving many genes and interrelated physiological pathways that are strongly influenced by environmental (E) factors. Omics technologies provide a holistic view of the status of genes (genomics), mRNAs (transcriptomics), proteins (proteomics), metabolites (metabolomics), and plant phenotypes (phenomics). Combining different levels of omics technologies can lead to a powerful interpretation of the dynamic processes in plant responses to environmental stimuli. Currently, there exists massive datasets from many different omics-driven research areas but there are knowledge gaps in how to connect those areas to utilize and maximize information gain. In this talk, the impact of G x E x management (M) interactions on crop production and quality through omics-driven analyses will be addressed.
