Abstract
Rice, with its small genome size and well-characterized molecular information, is an ideal model plant for cereal genomics
research. Sequence of the rice (Oryza sati6a) genome will be determined by the International Rice Genome Sequencing Project
(IRGSP) in the near future. Therefore, a large population of mutant plants should be required for adequately assigning function
to the abundant sequence information. Here we summarize strategies as well as the progress that has been made in producing gene
tags that may be invaluable for understanding the functional genomics of rice. 2001 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights
