Rice is the most important staple crop for two billion people in the world. However, the production system where rice is grown submerged in water (paddy fields) is under threat due to changing weather conditions. Due to

Activation tagged mutant resource of rice – a gold mine for agronomic applications

Insertional mutagenesis is a technology in which a segment of DNA, about which the investigator has complete information for its tracking, is introduced into the plant genome. These known DNA fragments can be elements such as transposons

Transgenic high-lysine rice may offer a truthful solution to malnutrition?

Amino acids are among the most important components in living organisms being the backbones of proteins that are critical to the survival of all living organisms, including plants. Unfortunately human beings and most of their farm animals

Conserved nitrogen-regulated network modules in rice

The goal of this research work is to transfer “network knowledge” from a data-rich model plant, Arabidopsis, to rice, to enhance the identification of nitrogen gene networks in a data-poor crop. Our working example for this study
