Pachytene Chromosomes of Oryza perennis Moench from Cambodia


RECENTLY, attempts have been made to investigate the chromosomes of Oryza sp. in greater detail through pachytene analysis. This method has also opened up a new line of research for a precise understanding of the cytogenetics of the genus Oryza. A similar examination has been carried out in Oryza perennis Moench, which is believed to have contributed largely in the evolutionary process of cultivated rices with a view to elucidating the nature of the ancestral chromosome complement of this genus.
