• Time‐ordering japonica/geng genomes analysis indicates the importance of large structural variants in rice breeding

    1 month ago - By Wiley

    Summary
    Temperate japonica/geng rice yield has significantly improved due to intensive breeding efforts, dramatically enhancing global food security. However, little is known about the underlying genomic structural variations responsible for this improvement. We compared 58 long-read assemblies comprising cultivated and wild rice species in the present study, revealing 156,319 SVs. The phylogenomic analysis based on the SV dataset detected the putatively selected region of GJ sub-populations. A significant portion of the detected SVs overlapped with genic regions were found to influence...
