Identification and mapping of a gene for rice slender kernel using Oryza glumaepatula introgression lines
Indonesian Journal Of Agricultural Science: 2, 55-59
World demand for superior rice grain quality tends to increase. One of the criteria of appearance quality of rice grain is grain shape. Rice consumers exhibit wide preferences for grain shape, but most Indonesian rice consumers prefer long and slender grain. An experiment was conducted to identify and map a gene for rice slender kernel trait using Oryza glumaepatula introgression lines with O. sativa Taichung 65 genetic background.
