    New Gene Facilitates Adaptation of Japonica Rice to Cold Climates

    Scientists from Chinese Academy of Sciences recently identified a gene facilitated adaptation of one kind of rice to cold climates. By combining population genetics, evolutional biology, and molecular biology techniques, Prof. CHU Chengcai and colleagues from Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology identified a critical regulatory gene bZIP73 that may have facilitated the northward expansion of japonica rice by improving its cold stress tolerance.
