Summary 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 1963, the Symposium on Rice Genetics and Cytogenetics was the first ever international conference devoted solely to rice genetics, cytogenetics, and taxonomy. This volume, published the following year, contains 27 chapters contributed by participants from the proceedings on topics dealing with rice genetic research, including taxonomy; gene symbolization and nomenclature; chromosome morphology in Oryza species; genetic and cytogenetic evidence for species relationships; the nature of intervarietal hybrid sterility in Oryza sativa; and inheritance studies, gene markers, and linkage groups
