Wild emmer wheat, being a potential reservoir of drought-related research, has been the source of several identified candidate drought-related genes with the development of "omics" approaches in the recent decades.
In one of the recent reports, TdicTMPIT1 (integral transmembrane protein inducible by Tumor Necrosis Factor-[alpha], TNF-[alpha]) was cloned from wild emmer root tissue and shown to be a membrane protein, associated with the drought stress response, exhibiting increased levels of expression, specifically in wild emmer wheat upon osmotic stress .
In one, the emmer wheat

"We found that einkorn and emmer wheats
have their own distinct flavors, and there is diversity among varieties." Today, einkorn is widely sought-after for its unique taste, which Dawson describes as sweet and nutty.
There is the diploid group of spelts, with 14 chromosomes (2 sets of 7), the tetraploid group of emmer wheats
and durum wheats, with 28 chromosomes (4 sets of 7), and the hexaploid group of the true wheats (6 sets of 7).
These include the ancient land races of wheat, including einkorn and emmer wheats
, and all their close cousins such as barley and rye.
Wild emmer wheats
in Palestine possess a relatively high crosspollination potential (Cook, 1913), so also Mexican wheats that tend toward cross-pollination (De Vries, 1971).
