DNA methylation polymorphism and stability in Chinese indica hybrid rice

Abstract

Conventional rice breeding has long focused on exploiting the DNA sequence diversity. However, epigenetic diversity, reflected particularly in DNA methylation, can also contribute to phenotypic variation and should not be overlooked in rice breeding. In this study, 20 parental lines of indica rice, which are widely used in hybrid rice breeding in China… (More)
