It struck me that our friends at AfricaRice genebank and their partners have been particularly busy genotyping and phenotyping these past couple of years, so here’s a quick roundup of recent papers on the crop for easy reference.
- The Rise and Fall of African Rice Cultivation Revealed by Analysis of 246 New Genomes
- Genetic control of seed shattering during African rice domestication
- A single-nucleotide polymorphism causes smaller grain size and loss of seed shattering during African rice domestication
- Genetic Variation and Population Structure of Oryza glaberrima and Development of a Mini-Core Collection Using DArTseq
- Domestication history and geographical adaptation inferred from a SNP map of African rice
- Screening African rice (Oryza glaberrima) for tolerance to abiotic stresses: I. Fe toxicity
- Screening African Rice (Oryza glaberrima) for Tolerance to Abiotic Stresses: II. Lowland Drought
And I’m sure I’m missed a few, these are just the ones that we have included in Brainfoods…
