Characterization of tissue-specific plant gene promoters will benefit genetic improvement in crops. Here, we isolated a novel rice anther-specific plant lipid transfer protein (OsLTP6) gene through high through-put expressional profiling. The promoter of OsLTP6 was introduced to the upstream of the uidA gene, which encodes β-glucuronidase (GUS), and(More)
Rice is the principal food for over half of the population of the world. With its genome size of 430 megabase pairs (Mb), the cultivated rice species Oryza sativa is a model plant for genome research. Here we report the sequence analysis of chromosome 4 of O. sativa, one of the first two rice chromosomes to be sequenced completely. The finished sequence(More)
the initial assembly of sequence data, stretches of poor or ambiguous quality and apparent gap regions were identified for further sequencing to obtain greater than 99.99% sequence accuracy. But despite extensive efforts to improve the sequence quality and to fill the gaps, 4 of the 390 PAC/BAC clones sequenced are still at phase 1 (GenBank, http://(More)
