Q-TARO citations


Genome wide association study of salt tolerance at the seed germination stage in rice

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5450148
PMID: 28558653
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-017-1044-0

[…] ociation locus by r 2 of LD ≥ 0.2 in each panel, and the SNP with the minimum P value in a cluster was considered as the lead SNP. Candidate genes near hits were extracted from the literature and the Q-TARO database []. The phenotypic variation explained (R 2) by the multiple lead SNPs of association loci in the whole, indica, and non-indica panels was estimated by a linear regression using SAS PR […]


OsPhyB Mediating Novel Regulatory Pathway for Drought Tolerance in Rice Root Identified by a Global RNA Seq Transcriptome Analysis of Rice Genes in Response to Water Deficiencies

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5405136
PMID: 28491065
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.00580

[…] acterized (Chandran et al., ). Information on the functionally characterized genes in rice is well-summarized in the Overview of functionally characterized Genes in Rice Online database (OGRO) on the Q-TARO website (http://qtaro.abr.affrc.go.jp/ogro). Regarding drought stress response, functions of 97 genes were introduced (Yamamoto et al., ). Stomatal conductance is one of the major mechanisms fo […]


QTL analysis and dissection of panicle components in rice using advanced backcross populations derived from Oryza Sativa cultivars HR1128 and ‘Nipponbare’

PLoS One
PMCID: 5396889
PMID: 28422981
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0175692

[…] test with 1,000 permutations. The threshold of LOD values was 2.5. QTL were named according to McCouch et al. [] and the QTL mapping results were comprehensively compared to the OGRO database [], the Q-TARO database [] and Gramene (http://archive.gramene.org/qtl/). The statistical significances for the population and parental trait data were calculated with Microsoft Excel. Phenotypic correlation […]


OGRO: The Overview of functionally characterized Genes in Rice online database

PMCID: 5520837
PMID: 27234245
DOI: 10.1186/1939-8433-5-26

[…] All data on the functionally characterized genes annotated in this study were compiled in OGRO (http://qtaro.abr.affrc.go.jp/ogro). Like Q-TARO (Yonemaru et al. ; http://qtaro.abr.affrc.go.jp/), OGRO consists of two Web applications: a gene information table and a genome viewer. The Web applications were implemented as Perl scripts and […]


Rice TOGO Browser: A Platform to Retrieve Integrated Information on Rice Functional and Applied Genomics

PMCID: 3037079
PMID: 21216747
DOI: 10.1093/pcp/pcq197

[…] ore efficient utilization of genomics data particularly in applied aspects of genomics. Most of these databases such as the RiceGeneThresher (Thongjuea et al. ), Gramene QTL Database (Ni et al. ) and Q-TARO Database (Yonemaru et al. ) focused on quantitative trait locus (QTL) information available for rice. With advances in genome research, comprehensive data integration has become indispensable i […]
