International research team announces finished rice genome

...biotechnology and conventional breeding to develop hardier rice varieties. The genetic map will greatly speed their hunt for genes that increase yield, protect against disease and pests, or provide drought-resistance in rice and other cereal crops. Rice is genetically similar to maize, wheat, barley, rye, s...

NSF awards 19 new projects to better undestand genetic processes in plants of economic importance

...brid vigor," whereby offspring turn out bigger and hardier than their parents. Researchers at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign explore nitrogen responses in maize to elucidate the genetic basis for dramatically increased yields following fertilization. This project includes an NSF-supported Developin...

New collaboration on rice DNA variation study

...breeding programs, accelerating the development of hardier and more productive strains of rice. "We are committed to contribute to a greater molecular understanding of rice's genetic variation as a foundation for future rice improvement." said Dr. Robert Zeigler, Director General of the International Rice R...

Tiny Tampa Bay fish key to evolution of immune system

... immune system protein that is similar to but much hardier than the version found in people. The bay waters are a microbial soup teeming with microorganisms, yet the worm-like bottom-feeder is remarkably adept at standing up to the bacterial, viral and chemical threats in its environment. Understanding how i...

Africa's farmers will have room to grow

...work is to generate maize varieties which are much hardier when drought hits. Doubling the yield of adapted maize varieties under drought is the ambitious goal for the next 10 years and is possible because of the huge, natural, genetic variation in maize and new scientific methods that permit better use of t...
