Development of Rice Promising Lines Using Genomic Technology and Information in Vietnam
A project for “The Development of Crop Genotypes for the midlands and Mountain Areas of North Vietnam” was implemented from 2011 to 2015 under the scheme of Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS) Project. Main objectives of the project were to develop promising lines of rice, which adapt to social and natural environmental conditions in Northern Vietnam. Based on the useful gene donors and DNA marker information provided by Japanese institutions, the project attempted to rapidly develop rice promising lines possessing useful agronomic traits such as short growth duration, high yield, and disease and insect resistance. Here, we introduce the background, progress and outputs of the project.
