Provides genome sequence/variant information for wild Oryza species together with that of several cultivated strains, in close collaboration with Oryzabase, ensuring easy access to information about geographical origins, phenotypic traits, mutants and genetic resources. The current version of OryzaGenome consists of genomic variants from 446 O. rufipogon accessions derived by an imputation method and variants from 17 accessions by imputation-free deeper (up to approximately 90×) sequencing along with the Os-Nipponbare-Reference-IRGSP-1.0 reference genome of O. sativa ssp. japonica cv. Nipponbare. Our goal is to establish a pan-Oryza genomic repository that covers both reference genome sequences and genomic variant information.
