Brar Darshan S, Mackill David J, Hardy Bill
The Rice Genetics Collection of past symposia and other selected literature contains nearly 4,400 pages of searchable information on rice genetics and cytogenetics published by the IRRI and its partners since 1964. In addition to the five genetics symposia held at 5-year intervals since 1985, the collection contains classic publications that kicked off significant reporting on these subjects in the early 1960s. This collection is a comprehensive and historical documentation on the subject of rice genetics, spanning 45 years of research and scholarly work.Held in 2005 and published two years later, Rice Genetics V contains 23 chapters from various contributors on topics dealing with rice genetic research, including rice as a model genome for cereal research, structural genomics and resources, developmental biology and gene regulation, applied genetics, and functional genomics and rice improvement. A brief overview of the past five Rice Genetics symposia, spanning the years 1985-2005, is fittingly included at the end.
