Contribute your efforts, further our knowledge.
RiceWiki, a project of IC4R (Information Commmons for Rice) as well as a component of ScienceWikis, is a wiki-based, publicly editable and open-content platform for community curation of genes and Omics Knowledge in rice, viz., a community-curated resource of rice knowledge. Unlike conventional biological databases based on expert curation, RiceWiki harnesses collective intelligence to collect, edit and annotate information about rice, quantifies users' contributions in each annotated gene and provides explicit authorship for each contributor to encourage more participation from the whole scientific community. Welcome to join us !

Rice Story
  • As an important food
Rice is the seed of the monocot plants Oryza sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza glaberrima (African rice). As a cereal grain, it is the most important staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, and the West Indies. It is the grain with the third-highest worldwide production, after maize (corn) and wheat, according to data for 2010 (Full article...).
  • As a biological model
Rice is also a model organism for the biological study of the grass family of crops and other plants. The two most common rice cultivars, indica and japonica, were completely sequenced in 2002. The genome sequences of domesticated rice provide a solid foundation for integrating biological information, including genetics, gene expression, development, physiology and evolution.
