Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is one of the staple food crops consumed by half of the world’s population. It is an ideal model for functional genomic research of monocots. Rice has two major subspecies, indica
and japonica. After sugarcane and maize, rice is the third highest worldwide production. It is well suited to cultivate to countries and regions with low labor costs and high rainfall.
