The Rice Genetics Collection of past symposia and other selected literature contains nearly 4,400 pages of searchable information on rice genetics and cytogenetics published by the IRRI and its partners since 1964. In addition to the five genetics symposia held at 5-year intervals since 1985, the collection contains classic publications that kicked off significant reporting on these subjects in the early 1960s. This collection is a comprehensive and historical documentation on the subject of rice genetics, spanning 45 years of research and scholarly work.Held in 1985 and published the following year, Rice Genetics I contains 77 chapters from various contributors on topics dealing with rice genetic research, including systematics and evolution; varietal diversity and reproductive barriers; karyotype, polyploids, and trisomics; linkage maps; genetics of morphological and physiological traits; genetics of stress tolerance, disease resistance, insect resistance, and quantitative traits; cytoplasmic male sterility and fertility restoration; mutagenesis; tissue and cell culture; and genetic engineering.
