Research on Rice

 

Rice is the most important staple food of Asians, it is a model plant for cereal plants, and the whole genomic sequencing of it has been completed. Our research institution was formerly known as the Breeding Station of Three-line Hybrid Rice of Hainan Li & Miao Minorities Autonomous State of Guangdong Province founded in 1975 and it was renamed as the official Tropical Rice Institute of Hainan Li & Miao Minorities Autonomous State of Guangdong Province in 1976. Rice research is always our research interest. Our current research interests are mainly focus on the following aspects:

1. Identification and genetic analysis of Rice Mutants

2. Molecular biology analysis of functional genes in Rice

3. Rice molecular character design based on transgenic technology

4. Rice traits improvement based on genomics assistance
