The threat of a food shortage in the 21st century has provided a powerful stimulus for research in the molecular biology of rice, which sustains more than half the world's population. Collaborative work by researchers in Asia, Europe, and North America has brought advances in genome analysis, regulation of gene expression, and transformation and improvement of Oryza sativa. With four major sections, Molecular Biology of Rice is an essential resource for all researchers working on the molecular biology of plants.
