Latest Oryza sativa Stories
An international team of scientists led by the UA has sequenced the genome of African rice.
Over the past decade or so the de-domestication of rice has increasingly plagued farmer's fields, with "weedy" strains of the grain cutting agricultural yields by as much as 80 percent.
System of 3 genes prevents hybrid rice from reproducing, new study shows
BGI, the world's largest genomics organization, announced that a study on resequencing 50 accessions of cultivated and wild rice was published online today in Nature Biotechnology.
Rice originated in China, a team of genome researchers has concluded in a study tracing back thousands of years of evolutionary history through large-scale gene re-sequencing.
Scientists seek to develop a rice strain that is better capable of withstanding drought and poorer soils and produces higher yields than current forms of domesticated rice.
Simple genetic changes make plants suitable for cultivation, but domestication wasn't always quick or easy.
A $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation will allow University of Arizona researchers to unlock the genetic code of West African cultivated rice
Scientists across the world are building an extensive repository of genetically modified rice plants in the hope of understanding the function of the approximately 57,000 genes that make up the genome of Oryza sativa.
By Zeng, Zhi Zhang, Han; Zhang, Tao; Chen, Jie Yu ABSTRACT A modified headspace solid-phase microextraction (SPME) method in conjunction with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC- MS) has been used for the analysis of the flavor volatiles in three rice cultivars with low levels of digestible protein during cooking.
