Genome-wide association analyses provide genetic and biochemical insights into natural variation in rice metabolism.

Plant metabolites are important to world food security in terms of maintaining sustainable yield and providing food with enriched phytonutrients. Here we report comprehensive profiling of 840 metabolites and a further metabolic genome-wide association study based on ~6.4 million SNPs obtained from...

AbstractFull Text

A brown planthopper resistant and high grain quality rice variety 'Anmi' developed by molecular breeding method.

'Anmi' is a new BPH (Brown planthopper) resistant japonica rice cultivar possessing the Bph18 gene derived from wild rice, Oryza australiensis and high yield potential with good grain quality. 'Anmi' was derived from a cross 'Junam' and 'IR65482-7-216-1-2' by a molecular marker assisted backcross...
