The Rice Diversity Project is a collaborative effort to explore the genetic basis of variation in rice and its wild ancestors. The project evaluates genotypes and phenotypes in a diverse set of rice accessions and uses association mapping to link genotype and phenotype. Our genotyping platforms are based on hundreds of thousands of SNP markers. Our phenotyping efforts use controlled vocabularies to systematically describe a broad array of plant characteristics.
This project is funded by the National Science Foundation.
