Developing rice cultivars for high-fertility upland systems in the Asian tropics
G-protein βγ subunits determine grain size through interaction with MADS-domain transcription factors in rice
Interaction of G-protein βγ subunits with an alternatively spliced MADS1lgy3 protein can increase rice grain yield and quality simultaneously in field conditions.

It is shown, on a genomic scale, how lineage-specific expansion or contraction of gene families has led to their morphological and reproductive diversification, thus enlightening the evolutionary process of speciation and adaptation.
Assessing the Impact of Agricultural Technology Adoption on Farmers' Well-being Using Propensity-Score Matching Analysis in Rural China*
The present paper assesses the impact of improved upland rice technology on farmers' well-being. The study uses propensity-score matching to address the problem of 'self-selection,' because…
Identification of rhizome-specific genes by genome-wide differential expression Analysis in Oryza longistaminata
The initiation and development of the rhizomatous trait in O. longistaminata are controlled by very complex gene networks involving several plant hormones and regulatory genes, different members of gene families showing tissue specificity and their regulated pathways.
The impact of agricultural technology adoption on income inequality in rural China: Evidence from southern Yunnan Province
Cytoplasm and cytoplasm-nucleus interactions affect agronomic traits in japonica rice
Results indicated that cytoplasm and cy toplasm-nucleus interaction played important roles in yield, low temperature tolerance, and some important agronomictraits in japonica rice.
Interspecific Hybrid Sterility in Rice Is Mediated by OgTPR1 at the S1 Locus Encoding a Peptidase-like Protein.
Molecular Mapping of a Pollen Killer Gene S29(t) in OryzaGlaberrima and Co-Linear Analysis with S22 in O. Glumaepatula
A new hybrid sterility gene as a Mendelian factor from O. glaberrima is mapped and analyzed to contribute significantly to the understanding of speciation and operation of Hybrid sterility between O. sativa and its AA genome relatives.
A selfish genetic element confers non-Mendelian inheritance in rice
Sterility in rice via toxin and antidote Crossing wild and domestic rice often results in hybrid sterility. Such genetic barriers can prevent the movement of potentially beneficial genes from wild…
