Rice as a model for cereal genomics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

72 Scopus citations


Over the past two years, selected regions of the rice genome have been sequenced and shown to be colinear at the sequence level with limited regions of other cereal genomes. A large number of expressed gene sequences and molecular markers have accumulated in the public databases. Large insert clone libraries of the rice genome have been constructed, and rice has become an increasingly attractive candidate for whole genome sequencing.
