The research work was carried out at national agriculture research center Islamabad (NARC) and Pakistan council of scientific and industrial research (PCSIR) Peshawar. The research was comprised of biochemical characterization SDS page and PCA to estimate the genetic diversity. The cultivar were consisted of cultivated varieties, elite varieties and advance line of (30) genotypes. To absorb Fe, Cr, Ca, Mn, Zn, Pb, Cu, Na, K, protein, moisture, concentration. Sodium Dodeceylsulphate Poly Acraylamide Gel Electrophoresis of wheat genotypes was conducted. The data was collected and subjected to analysis of un weighted pair group method with arithmetic averages (UPGMA) with statistica software package 0.5. In multivariate data analysis have 11 variables which have maximum variability. The more variation was observed among Inqilab-91, Bars-2009, Shafaq-2006, NARC-2009, Wc-24, and Sahakar-95. To produce more diverse genotypes we should cross among these varieties.
