Abstract

Rice (Oryza sativa) is one of the most important staple crops worldwide, feeding a significant portion of the global population. The availability of genomic resources and advanced molecular techniques has enabled researchers to identify and characterize specific DNA sequences associated with important agronomic traits in rice. Chromosome 3 of rice has been found to harbor several genes and genomic regions associated with traits of agronomic significance. This study aims to molecularly characterize a rice chromosome 3-specific DNA sequence with the ultimate goal of rice improvement.
