Use of Site-Specific Recombination for Hybrid Rice Production
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Based on previous work we anticipate that this project will provide a proof of principle for hybrid rice production as an attractive alternative to the use of CMS in rice. We expect that this technology will become standard to the rice industry and integrated into worldwide breeding programs. We also anticipate that this technology will be used in a wide array of other cereal crop species, which like rice, are not architecturally predisposed to simple mechanical sterilization. It is highly likely that this same system would be extended to other crops of economic importance such as corn, wheat, etc.
