The Utilization of Rice Blast Resistance Genes in Hybrid Rice Breeding in China
Protecting Rice Grains in the Post-Genomic Era [Working Title]
Hybrid rice has demonstrated promises of yield gain for over several decades since its conception and massive deployment in China. One of the common bottlenecks of hybrid rice is the availability of suitable breeding lines as parents to produce marketable rice grains. Due to limitation of genetic diversity of breeding parent, hybrid rice is extremely vulnerable to rice blast disease caused by the fungal pathogen Magnaporthe oryzae. M. oryzae is a highly adaptive fungus that often gains newdoi:10.5772/intechopen.83617 fatcat:5fgdyf4dejaf7m5nzmqibuhbfq
