The major objectives of the project were to identify, adapt and evaluate molecular markers for routine use in the Australian rice-breeding program. The major component of the work involved the development of markers for the semi-dwarfing gene sd-1 and the major fragrance gene fgr.
This publication provides a description of the development and assessment of four useful markers for sd-1 and three useful markers for fgr. The utilisation of these markers within the Australian rice-breeding program is discussed.
