Rice genetics III
IRRI’s rice biotechnology program fully supports and participates in the activities of the RGC and has strong linkages with the RF and Japanese program, Rice Genome Research Program (RGRP) at the Society for Techno-innovation of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (STAFF) Institute in Japan. Like the first two symposia in this series, IRRI was pleased to host the third international rice genetics symposium. Around 200 rice scientists attended the first symposium in May 1985, and more than 300 participated in the second symposium in May 1990. More than 500 scientists from 31 countries were attracted to this third symposium.
