Rice Plant is a proprietary functional genomics Platform using Large-scale Agrobacterium- mediated Nuclear Transformation of rice, Oryza sative L. With the growing body of sequence information, there is also a parallel and compelling need to assign functions to predicted gene sequences through experimental validation. Experimental validation of gene function, especially for plant genes, (knock-out) of such genes in model plant like rice.
Small and sequenced genome
Well characterized species in terms of genetic, molecular and agronomic information
Genome is syntenic with that of other plant species, especially major cereal crops
Relatively short life cycle
Optimized protocols for high throughput genetic transformation
Rice PlantTM offers you a complete solution for experimental validation of the functions of candidate genes and regulator sequences.
