The genetic mechanism of crop disease resistance is one of the key research contents in the field of agricultural biotechnology. In recent years, genome-wide association study (GWAS), as an effective genetic analysis tool, has made remarkable progress in revealing the genetic basis of crop disease resistance. This study summarized the application of GWAS in crop disease resistance research, including the principle and method of association analysis, the discovery of disease-resistance-related genes, and discussed the application of GWAS in disease resistance breeding, as well as the challenges and directions of future research. By summarizing these research results, this study can further understand the genetic mechanism of crop disease resistance and provide scientific basis for crop disease resistance breeding.
