The Wild Rice Whole Genome Frame Map is Completed by KIB Scientists

In August 2010, the research team headed by GAO Li-Zhi in Kunming Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences completed the de novo sequencing and assembling of wild rice (Oryza rufipogon) genome and has acquired the frame map covering the whole genome of wild rice. This is the first wild rice genome sequencing project carried out by Chinese scientistsindependently and is also the world’s first whole genome frame map of wild rice with high heterozygosis degree. The genome of wild rice has 370 million base pairs and 40,000 genes. The sequencing depth was 70 times as large as the genome size. The sequencing results covered 92% of the wild rice genome with gene coverage of over 90%. Now the team is drawing the fine wild rice genome map.
