New challenges and technologies in plant genomics and breeding
Poster
The productivity of rice is greatly affected by soil salinity which is the second most widespread soil problem after drought in rice growing areas in the world. This research was aimed to analyse Sri Lankan rice varieties grown in salinity affected areas, with the SSR markers closer to, previously identified – Saltol QTL – located on chromosome 1 and use those data in rice breeding and gene...

We have developed a unique technology for mutation induction of plants using energetic ion beams at the RI Beam Factory (RIBF) of RIKEN. Ion beams effectively induce mutations at relatively low doses without severely inhibiting growth. The irradiation treatment can be given to various plant materials and mutation can be induced in a short time between seconds and a few minutes. We have...
