Oryza sativa Indica Group Assembly and Gene Annotation
About Oryza sativa Indica
Oryza sativa Indica is one of the two most commonly cultivated sub-species of rice (along with O. sativa Japonica) and is the most widely grown in the hot climates of Southern Asia. The genome of Indica is very similar to that of Japonica, which is generally restricted to temperate climes such as Japan.
The genome of Oryza sativa Indica Group cultivar 93-11 was sequenced by the Beijing Genome Institute (BGI) following a whole-genome shotgun strategy.
Probes from the Rice Genome Array for two rice cultivars were aligned to the genome.
Two sources of variation data from NCBI dbSNP has been mapped onto the genome assembly:
- SNPs called from the comparison of Oryza sativa Indica and Oryza sativa Japonica.
- SNPs resulting from OMAP project alignments between O. glaberrima, O. punctata, O. nivara, and O. rufipogon agains O. sativa Japoinca mapped to O. sativa indica.
