Chemical and irradiation induced mutants and TILLING.


In this chapter, we discuss various chemical and irradiation mutagens, mutagenesis strategies and various forward and reverse genetics approaches available with special reference to TILLING and its application as a powerful reverse genetics strategy for plants. We highlight the current status of rice mutant stocks, databases and forward and reverse genetics strategies being employed for rice functional genomics.
