Rice Germplasm Laboratory Research Activities
Within National Program #301, this laboratory conducts research for certain objectives included in the ARS-appropriated projects “Genomic Approaches and Genetic Resources for Improving Rice Yield and Grain Quality” and “Using genetic approaches to reduce crop losses in rice due to biotic and abiotic stresses.”
The Rice Germplasm Laboratory also conducts research on these outside-funded projects: “CPGS: Genome-wide impact of mPing transposition on rice phenotypic diversity” (funded by the National Science Foundation) and “Attributable factors to rice straighthead and development of a natural screening and evaluation site” (funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture).
You may see additional information on each of these projects by going to the Research page of the DBNRRC website here.
