DEGs in ears at the V9 stage in response to drought were involved in nucleosome assembly, cell division and growth, auxin signaling and the development process. a Downregulated genes involved in nucleosome assembly. b Downregulated genes involved in cell division and growth. c GO term analysis of DEGs in ears at V9 stage showed enrichment of the organ development process. d DEGs involved in the auxin signaling pathway. All the plants were grown under natural conditions, normal nutrients, well-watered soil in the field until the designated stages. Drought stress treatments (5 days drought stress at the V9 stage) and a normal control were performed. The upper ear from drought stress and control plants was collected for RNA sequencing. The absolute values of log2 (drought/control) ≥1 and FDR < 0.001 were used as the criteria for DEGs. The color of the box represents up (red) and down (green)-regulated genes (drought/normal), and the value in the box is the log2 (drought/control) of the genes in the ear (drought/normal) at the V9 stage
