Featured: Submergence shapes genetic architecture of rice
Submergence is a major factor limiting rice productivity in many rainfed lowland areas of Asia. In breeding varieties with good submergence tolerance, backcross breeding with strong phenotypic selection is effective to improve rice submergence tolerance. In a study published in the July issue of The Plant Genome, Wang et al. characterize genome-wide responses to selection for improved submergence tolerance in multiple related backcross breeding populations using DNA markers. >>
