The Whole African Rice Genome resequencing project

The Whole African Rice Genome resequencing project is a collaboration between Genoscope, CIRAD and IRD (UMR DIADE). In this project, a focus have been done on 300 cultivated African Rice (O. glaberrima) and 100 wild relative (O. barthii). A SNP analysis have been performed and results have been used for evolution study, new gene discovery, QTL cloning, forward/reverse genetics and allele identification. This work was supported by a grant from the France Genomique French National infrastructure and funded as part of ‘‘Investissement d’avenir’’ (ANR-10-INBS-09) and the IRIGIN project.

163 traditional cultivated varieties of the African rice, O. glaberrima and 83 wild relatives, O. barthii. were fully sequenced with a high coverage (illumina, average 37x, range 20–55x).
