This 10k international rice core germplasms resequencing and whole genome molecular design breeding project, funded by the Gates foundation and launched by BGI, IRRI and CAAS, is a part of super green rice project.
Global representative rice core germplasms were introduced from IRRI. Through large scale resequencing and bioinformatic analysis, core collection construction and phenotyping analysis, important traits related gene or QTL mapping, rice genotype and phenotype database construction, we will provide the most comprehensive solution for global rice breeding. Furthermore, rice whole genome molecular breeding system will be developed with these genome information.
