Enhancing nutritional value and grain quality.

Enhancing the nutritional value and grain quality of modern rice varieties.

Molecular Characterization and Genetic Analysis of Nutritional Components of Philippine Indigenous Pigmented Rice Germplasm (NutrientRice).
NutrientRice is a BBSRC-funded project partnering with the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in the Philippines.
The primary aim is to identify rice accessions as potential donors of high nutrient and antioxidant traits with good grain quality, and to integrate the identified genetic donors into PhilRice rice breeding programmes, thereby improving the nutritional value as well as the grain quality of modern rice varieties.
