About Oryza meridionalis
Oryza meridionalis is a wild rice found in Australia, one of the wild rice species included in the OMAP project. It belongs to the AA genome group. It has 12 chromosomes with a nuclear genome size of 435 Mb (flow cytometry). It is found at edges of freshwater lagoons, temporary pools, and swamps in 15-20 cm of water and grows in black, clay soil in open habitats. This work was part of the Oryza Genome Evolution project funded by NSF Award #1026200 and in collaboration with Olivier Panaud and Robert Henry.
