The Rice Genetics Collection of past symposia and other selected literature contains nearly 4,400 pages of searchable information on rice genetics and cytogenetics published by the IRRI and its partners since 1964. In addition to the five genetics symposia held at 5-year intervals since 1985, the collection contains classic publications that kicked off significant reporting on these subjects in the early 1960s. This collection is a comprehensive and historical documentation on the subject of rice genetics, spanning 45 years of research and scholarly work. Held in 1990 and published the following year, Rice Genetics II contains 65 chapters from various contributors on topics dealing with rice genetic research, including varietal differentiation and evolution; genetic markers, linkage groups, and aneuploids; genetics of stress tolerance, morphological and physiological traits, and disease and insect resistance; tissue and cell culture; molecular genetics of cytoplasmic and nuclear genomes, rice proteins, and disease resistance; RFLP analysis of rice genomes; and transformation techniques. -->. Foreword. Foreword (15k). Sample Chapter(s). Association between Pox-1 variation and seed productivity potential in wild rice (1,931k). Contents: Evolutionary Significance of Differential Regulation at the wx Locus of Rice (Y Sano et al.); Analysis of Genes for Stigma Coloration in Rice (H I Oka); Genetics of Leaf Rolling Under Drought Stress (B N Singh & D J Mackill); Mutants for Rice Storage Proteins (T Kumamaru et al.); Genetic Analysis of Resistance to Whitebacked Planthopper Sogatella furcifera Horvath in Rice (S Min et al.); Diallel Analysis of Callus Growth and Plant Regeneration in Rice (T Abe & Y Futsuhara); Structure of Cytoplasmic Genomes in Rice (A Hirai et al.); Genetic Variation in Tissue Culture-Derived Rice Plants (P T H Brown et al.); RFLP
Mapping of the Rice Genome (S D Tanksley et al.); Rice Endosperm Proteins and Their Accumulation Signals (N Mitsukawa & K Tanaka); Defense Gene Regulation (C J Lamb et al.); Rice Transformation, Vectors, and Expression of Transferred Genes (L A M Hensgens et al.); and other papers. Readership: Rice scientists/researchers, crop science specialists, and agriculture professionals and students.
