Oryza: From Molecule to Plant

Overview

Recent studies have shown that despite gross differences in genome size, the gene order in the cereal genomes has remained remarkably similar. This observation implies that the small genome of rice will reflect the basic structure of the cereal genomes. Rice will therefore become an important tool for all cereal geneticists/molecular biologists as information generated by rice breeders/geneticists/molecular biologists becomes combined in databases with that generated by researchers studying other cereals. Rice ...

Overview

Recent studies have shown that despite gross differences in genome size, the gene order in the cereal genomes has remained remarkably similar. This observation implies that the small genome of rice will reflect the basic structure of the cereal genomes. Rice will therefore become an important tool for all cereal geneticists/molecular biologists as information generated by rice breeders/geneticists/molecular biologists becomes combined in databases with that generated by researchers studying other cereals. Rice research will therefore be of interest to all cereal breeders/geneticists/molecular biologists. This Edition reviews the current state of knowledge of its genome, genes, germplasm collection, trait analysis, breeding systems, mutator systems, transformation and its diseases.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reviews the current state of knowledge of rice genomes and genes, germ-plasm collections, trait analysis, breeding and mutator systems, transformation, and diseases. Subjects include comparative genetics in the grasses, alien introgression in rise, origin and variation of rice, the role of the International Rice Genebank at IRRI, rice molecular genetic mapping using RFLP, physical mapping of the rice genome with YAC and BAC, and genetic and molecular dissection of quantitative traits in rice. Includes color and b&w photos. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
'...it will be useful not only for specialists of plantbiotechnology, cereal breeders and geneticists, but some problems presented here may be of special interest also to plant physiologists.'
Acta Physiologiae Plantarum, 20:2 (1998)P
