Project funding: National Science Foundation Plant Genome Research Program (#1026200) for the Oryza Genome Evolution (OGE) Project. These pre-publication data are being released under guidelines of the Fort Lauderdale Agreement, which reaffirms the balance between fair use (i.e. no pre-emptive publication) and early disclosure. You are encouraged use these data to advance your research on individual loci but are asked to respect the rights of the investigators who generated these data to publish the whole-genome level description of O. brachyantha in a peer-reviewed journal. This description includes whole-genome comparative analyses, genome size evolution, gene family evolution, gene organisation and movement, heterochromatin, centromere evolution. This genome falls under the scope of the I-OMAP (International Oryza Map Alignment Project) consortium. The I-OMAP consortium is an internationally coordinated effort to create high-quality reference assemblies representing the diversity of wild and crop-progenitor species in the genus Oryza (Jacquemin et al, 2012). For enquiries and information on how to cite these data please contact Dr. Mingsheng Chen or Dr. Rod Wing.

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 Mb.
