The biodiversity, ethnobotany and genetic erosion of rice and its wild relatives in China are reviewed and some suggestions for the ways to enhance efforts to conserve rice genetic resources are given.
Allozyme variation and conservation genetics of common wild rice (Oryza rufipogon Griff.) in Yunnan, China
The result suggests that the current center of genetic diversity for O. rufipogon fail to agree with that for cultivated rice in China, and an appropriate strategy for conserving the three surviving populations from Yunnan was proposed.
Comparisons of microsatellite variability and population genetic structure of two endangered wild rice species, Oryza rufipogon and O. officinalis, and their conservation implications
The results suggest the adoption of a plan of involving fewer populations but more individuals within populations for O. rufipogon, while both the number of populations and the individuals for a sampled population should be almost equally considered forO.
Draft genomes of two outcrossing wild rice, Oryza rufipogon and O. longistaminata, reveal genomic features associated with mating‐system evolution
It is found that numerous genes related to these rapidly evolving CNSs are enriched in reproductive structure development, flower development, and postembryonic development, which may associate with SI in O. rufipogon and O. longistaminata.
Genome-Wide Analysis of WRKY Genes and Their Response to Salt Stress in the Wild Progenitor of Asian Cultivated Rice, Oryza rufipogon
This study provides a new insight on the evolution of the WRKY gene family in O. rufipogon and will help further functional characterization of candidate genes toward wild rice germplasm exploration for rice genetic improvement programs.
The draft genome sequence of an upland wild rice species, Oryza granulata
This chromosome-length genome assembly of O. granulata will provide novel insights into rice genome evolution, enhance the efforts to search for new genes for future rice breeding programmes and facilitate the conservation of germplasm of this endangered wild rice species.
SMRT sequencing of the Oryza rufipogon genome reveals the genomic basis of rice adaptation
It is shown that selection pressures may serve as crucial forces to govern substantial genomic alterations among the three rice species that form the genetic basis of rapid evolution of mating and reproductive systems under diverse habitats.
New evidence for rice cultivation from the Early Neolithic Hehuashan site
The change in the amount and morphology of bulliform phytoliths indicates the presence of wild rice around the site at the time of human occupation, which provides evidence of a shift from the collection and possible manipulation of wild Rice to cultivation during the Shangshan Culture period.
