About Oryza brachyantha

Oryza brachyantha (wild rice) is a distant relative of cultivated rice (O. satia Japonica and O. sativa Indica). It is placed on the basal lineage of Oryza and is the only member of the genus assigned to the F-genome type. An annual or weekly perennial tufted grass, it is distributed in west and central Africa, and grows in open wetland habitats. It has potentially useful traits for rice breeding, including resistance/tolerance to yellow stem borer, leaffolder, whorl maggot and bacterial blight. The O. brachyantha genome provides an important resource for functional and evolutionary studies in the genus Oryza. Its nuclear genome is diploid (2n = 24) and ~362 Mbp.
