Abstract:
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the staple food for an estimated 60% of the world population. The aroma of rice plays an important role in fetching the higher market price. The fragrance of the rice grain is largely controlled by allelic variation at OsBADH2, a gene which comprises 15 exons. There are more than eighteen mutations leading to the production of aroma in rice. In this study, we attempted to reveal potential allelic variation causing fragrance through in silico analysis based on the sequences available in the Rice SNP-Seek-Database. A set of 76 aromatic (aro) accessions from 3K rice genome project were accessed for analyzing the allelic variation. Allelic diversity analysis identified 23 INDELs and 5 SNPs in BADH2 gene sequence. In this study, ten haplotypes (H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6, H7, H8, H9 and H10) contributed by 5 SNPs were identified for OsBADH2.
