RNA Sequencing of a wild-abortive cytoplasmic male sterile line of rice and its cognate, isonuclear maintainer line
Interaction between gene products encoded by the cytoplasm and nucleus form the core of wild abortive cytoplasmic male sterile (WA-CMS) system of hybrid breeding in rice. Gaining insights into such interactions can be helpful in the development of better three-line rice hybrids and also identify novel male sterility systems.
In the present study,our client #DrRSSundaram, #DrKalyani, #DrSesumadhav and #DrSatyendtaM, discovered the whole transcriptome profiles of immature florets of IR58025A, a WA-CMS line and its isonuclear maintainer line, IR58025B, collected at pre-anthesis stage were compared to delineate the pathways involved in pollen abortion and male sterility.
Congratulations to the entire team.
