The International Rice Information System (IRIS, is the rice implementation of the International Crop Information System (ICIS,, a database system for the management and integration of global information on genetic resources and germplasm improvement for any crop. Building upon the germplasm genealogy and(More)

This study was conducted to understand variation patterns and establish the population structure in the wild rice species, Oryza officinalis, using accessions collected across the 11 regions/areas of endemism in Asia and Oceania and conserved ex situ in the International Rice Genebank at the International Rice Research Institute. Morphological and(More)
Understanding population structure of the wild progenitor of Asian cultivated rice (O. sativa), the Oryza rufipogon species complex (ORSC), is of interest to plant breeders and contributes to our understanding of rice domestication. A collection of 286 diverse ORSC accessions was evaluated for nuclear variation using genotyping-by-sequencing (113,739 SNPs)(More)

Traditional rice varieties harbour a large store of genetic diversity with potential to accelerate rice improvement. For a long time, this diversity maintained in the International Rice Genebank has not been fully used because of a lack of genome information. The publication of the first reference genome of Nipponbare by the International Rice Genome(More)
A novel QTL cluster for chalkiness on Chr04 was identified using single environment analysis and joint mapping across 9 environments in Asia and South American. QTL NILs showed that each had a significant effect on chalk. Chalk in rice grains leads to a significant loss in the proportion of marketable grains in a harvested crop, leading to a significant(More)
IN THEIR REPORT " INSECT-RESISTANT GM rice in farmers' fields: assessing productivity and health effects in China " (29 Apr., p. 688), J. Huang et al. found that farmers growing insect-resistant GM rice obtained higher yields with less use of insecticides than farmers growing conventional varieties. Huang et al.'s methodology does not, however, permit(More)
