Project funding: National Science Foundation Plant Genome Research Program (#1026200) for the Oryza Genome Evolution (OGE) Project. These pre-publication data are being released under guidelines of the Fort Lauderdale Agreement, which reaffirms the balance between fair use (i.e. no pre-emptive publication) and early disclosure. Users are encouraged use these data to advance their research on individual loci but are asked to respect the rights of the investigators who generated these data to publish the whole-genome level description of the O. barthii in a peer-reviewed journal. This description includes whole-genome comparative analyses, genome size evolution, gene family evolution, gene organization and movement, heterochromatin, centromere evolution. This genome falls under the scope of the I-OMAP (International Oryza Map Alignment Project) consortium. The I-OMAP consortium is an internationally coordinated effort to create high-quality reference assemblies representing the diversity of wild and crop-progenitor species in the genus Oryza (Jacquemin et al, 2012).

About Oryza barthii

Oryza barthii is the AA genome progenitor of the West African cultivated rice, O. glaberrima. It belongs to the AA genome group and has 12 chromosomes and a nuclear genome size of 411Mb (flow cytometry). It is found in mopane or savanna woodland, savanna or fadama. Grows in deep water, seasonally flooded land, stagnant water, and slowly flowing water or pools; prefers clay or black cotton soils. Found in open habitats. This work was part of the OGE project funded by NSF Award #1026200.
