Cold stress is one of the main constraints in rice production, and damage from cold can occur at different developmental stages in rice. Understanding the genetic basis of cold tolerance is the key for breeding cold-tolerant variety. In this study, we used single segment substitution lines (SSSLs) derived from a cross between cold-tolerant japonica variety… CONTINUE READING
