Genes and QTLs for Rice Grain Quality Improvement

  title={Genes and QTLs for Rice Grain Quality Improvement},
  author={Jinsong Bao},
As a major cereal crop, rice (Oryza sativa L.) is crucial to food security for at least half the world population. New varieties with high yield potential, good quality and high resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses are needed in order to meet the demand for more food arising from the rapid human population growth and concurrent decrease in arable land. Improvement of rice quality has now become a foremost consideration for rice buyers and breeding programs.
