Oryza sativa

Rice

Rice (Oryza sativa) is the principal food for over half of the population of the world . With its genome size of 430 megabase pairs (Mb), the cultivated rice species Oryza sativa is a model plant for genome research and for cereals in particular.


This species is one focus of our research work on genome dynamics . We study how transposable elements play a role on its genome size variations
 We work in collaborations with the CIRAD bioinformatics teams to share expertised rice data by CIRAD (genetic maps, annotations, mutant FST sequence -flanking sequence tag- ).
