  60. ncbi request reprint A fine physical map of the rice chromosome 5
    Chia Hsiung Cheng
    Institute of Botany, Academia Sinica, Taipei 115, Taiwan
    Mol Genet Genomics 274:337-45. 2005
    ..In addition, FISH results revealed uneven chromatin condensation around the centromeric region at the pachytene stage. This map is of use for positional cloning and further characterization of the rice functional genomics...
  61. ncbi request reprint Random sheared fosmid library as a new genomic tool to accelerate complete finishing of rice (Oryza sativa spp. Nipponbare) genome sequence: sequencing of gap-specific fosmid clones uncovers new euchromatic portions of the genome
    Jetty S S Ammiraju
    Department of Plant Sciences and BIO5 Institute, Arizona Genomics Institute, The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
    Theor Appl Genet 111:1596-607. 2005
    ..Further sequencing of 12 of the gap-specific fosmid clones uncovered unique rice genome sequence that was not previously reported in the finished IRGSP sequence and emphasizes the need to complete finishing of the rice genome...

  63. pmc Diverse variation of reproductive barriers in three intraspecific rice crosses
    Yoshiaki Harushima
    Plant Genetics Laboratory, National Institute of Genetics, Mishima, Shizuoka 411 8540, Japan
    Genetics 160:313-22. 2002
    ..The reproductive barriers of Japonica-Indica hybrids likely evolved more rapidly than other genetic elements. One possible force responsible for such rapid evolution of the barriers may have been the domestication of rice...
