Rice Plant is a proprietary functional genomics Platform using Large-scale Agrobacterium- mediated Nuclear Transformation of rice, Oryza sative L. With the growing body of sequence information, there is also a parallel and compelling need to assign functions to predicted gene sequences through experimental validation. Experimental validation of gene function, especially for plant genes, (knock-out) of such genes in model plant like rice.
Why Rice?
  Small and sequenced genome
  Well characterized species in terms of genetic,   molecular and agronomic information
  Genome is syntenic with that of other plant species,   especially major cereal crops
  Relatively short life cycle
  Optimized protocols for high throughput genetic   transformation

Rice PlantTM offers you a complete solution for experimental validation of the functions of candidate genes and regulator sequences.
Rice PlantTM Technology Highlights
  Automated Sequence Annotation
  Knock-in through constitutive over expression and   knock-out through anti-sense suppression
