WD40 proteins represent a large family in eukaryotes, which have been involved in a broad spectrum of crucial functions. Systematic characterization and co-expression analysis of OsWD40 genes enable us to understand the networks of the WD40 proteins and their biological processes and gene functions in rice. In this study, we identify and analyze 200(More)
The Hsp20 genes represent the most abundant small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) in plants. Hsp20 gene family has been shown to be involved in preventing heat shock and promoting resistance to environmental stress factors, but very little is known about this gene family in rice. Here, we report the identification and characterization of 39 OsHsp20 genes in(More)
Rice Variation Map (RiceVarMap, http:/ricevarmap.ncpgr.cn) is a database of rice genomic variations. The database provides comprehensive information of 6,551,358 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and 1,214,627 insertions/deletions (INDELs) identified from sequencing data of 1479 rice accessions. The SNP genotypes of all accessions were imputed and(More)
The anthers and pollen grains are critical for male fertility and hybrid rice breeding. The development of rice mature anther and pollen consists of multiple continuous stages. However, molecular mechanisms regulating mature anther development were poorly understood. In this study, we have identified 291 mature anther-preferentially expressed genes (OsSTA)(More)
Pyramiding of S5 - n and f5 - n cumulatively improved seed-setting rate of indica–japonica hybrids, which provided an effective approach for utilization of inter-subspecific heterosis in rice breeding. Breeding for indica–japonica hybrid rice is an attractive approach to increase rice yield. However, hybrid sterility is a major obstacle in utilization of(More)
BACKGROUND SET domain is responsible for the catalytic activity of histone lysine methyltransferases (HKMTs) during developmental process. Histone lysine methylation plays a crucial and diverse regulatory function in chromatin organization and genome function. Although several SET genes have been identified and characterized in plants, the understanding of(More)
Eulaliopsis binata, which is a close relative of cereal crops, was recognized as an important research material owing to its high frequency of apospory and autonomous endosperm formation. However, little information is known about its genomics and regulatory pathway participating in reproductive development. For the first step to understand molecular basis(More)
