Reference Number 20040185
Project Title Transfer of ß-carotene Biosynthetic Genes from Golden Rice Lines to Elite Rice Varieties through Marker-Aided Backcrossing
Project Type Contained Use
Status Terminated
Name of Institution Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice),Maligaya, Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija,(044) 456-0426/0415 ext. 259
Cooperating Institution International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Los Baños, Laguna
Supervising IBC PhilRice-IBC
Project Leader(s) Dr. Antonio Alfonso and Dr. Leocadio Sebastian
Experimental Facility/Site PhilRice, Nueva Ecija, Philippines
Purpose / Objectives 1. To evaluate the morpho- agronomic characteristics of three Golden Rice Lines (GR- IR64, GR- Taipei 309, and GR- Cocodrie) as well as their wild type and tissue culture- derived azygotic (non- transgenic) counterparts under screen house condition.
2. To transfer the beta- carotene biosynthetic genes from these Golden Rice lines to Philippine commercial rice varieties such as IR64, PSB Rc82, and PJ21 through molecular marker- aided backcrossing.
3. To conduct morpho- agronomic and grain quality evaluation of the parental materials and backcross- derived progenies.
