Rice is the one of the oldest crop cereals in Asia and has been grown since ancient times. In the present study, a rice diversity panel was exposed to drought and drought recovery was scored to identify QTLs and candidate genes related to drought resistance. There are no reports of QTL mapping using Genome wide association mapping for drought recovery has been published. Only one significant association on chromosome 2 for drought recovery with physical position at 24559374 bp was found. positional candidate genes underneath QTL was examined bioinformatically and through the literature revealing several interesting genes which may offer potential for developing drought resistant rice cultivars.
