Citation: Rutger, J.N., Bernhardt, L. 2007. Registration of four indica rice genetic stocks. Crop Science. 47:461-462. Interpretive Summary: These are rice genetic stocks, which can generally be produced only by specialized techniques, and in small amounts. They are expected to be useful to other scientists for conducting basic studies on rice genetics. In some cases they may be useful for identifying lines in rice breeding programs.
Technical Abstract: The Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture released four indica rice genetic stocks (Oryza sativa L.), apoptosis, chives, extreme dwarf, and gold leaf, Reg. No. GS ___ to _____,and PI _______ to _______, respectively, in May, 2006. These specialized seed stocks are expected to be useful to scientists conducting basic genetic studies, and some cases may be useful to breeders for identifying lines in breeding programs.
