Zinc (Zn) is an essential micronutrient for human, and improving Zn concentration in rice could be a simple and effective way to solve insufficient Zn uptake from daily diet. In this study, a recombinant inbred line (RIL) population was developed from a commercial hybrid combination Wandao153, and subjected to quantitative trait loci (QTL) detection for Zn concentration in brown rice and heading date. Five QTL for Zn concentration and six for heading date were detected across 2 years, among…

Advances in breeding for high grain Zinc in Rice

Breeding rice varieties with high grain Zn has been suggested to be a sustainable, targeted, food-based and cost effective approach in alleviating Zn deficiency and a combination of genetic and agronomic biofortification strategies may be more effective.

Quantitative trait loci for phytate in rice grain and their relationship with grain micronutrient content

In this preliminary study, quantitative trait loci for grain phytates, Zn and Fe in glasshouse-grown rice lines from an IR64 × Azucena doubled haploid population were identified and correlations between phytate and essential nutrients were studied.

A major QTL, Ghd8, plays pleiotropic roles in regulating grain productivity, plant height, and heading date in rice.

The cloning and characterization of Ghd8, a major QTL with pleiotropic effects on grain yield, heading date, and plant height are reported, indicating the conserved function ofGhd8 and AtHAP3b in flowering in Arabidopsis.

Genome-Wide Association Studies Reveal the Genetic Basis of Ionomic Variation in Rice[OPEN]

A comprehensive study exploring the genetic architecture of the variation in the rice ionome performed using genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of the concentrations of 17 mineral elements in rice grain from a diverse panel of 529 accessions identifies 72 loci associated with natural ionomic variations.

Analysis of QTLs Associated with the Rice Quality Related Gene by Double Haploid Populations

Correlation analysis of the amylose, protein, and lipid contents indicated that each compound is related to the taste of cooked rice.

DTH8 Suppresses Flowering in Rice, Influencing Plant Height and Yield Potential Simultaneously1[W][OA]

Qualitative real-time PCR assay data indicate that DTH8 probably plays an important role in the signal network of photoperiodic flowering as a novel suppressor as well as in the regulation of plant height and yield potential.
