About the book

Rice is the most important food crop of the world. It is a staple food for more than 40% of the world population. It feeds more than two billion people in the developing countries. It has a major share in global agriculture economy, however, its production and yield is compromised due to various biotic, abiotic and climatic factors. To meet the food security standards, modern and sophisticated technologies have been used for improvement of rice production. Starting from the conventional breeding strategies to the modern technologies, there is a long history of rice research.

In this book, various technologies used in rice research will be discussed. The book will deal with the rice breeding, biotechnology, cytology and cytogenetics, OMICS studies, genetic manipulation of rice, genome editing, genome sequencing, etc.
