dc.description.abstractAs the world’s population expands from 7.6 billion to 10 billion over the next 30 years, scientists and farmers across the globe must explore every angle necessary to provide a safe, stable and sustainable food supply for generations to come. Rice, and its wild relatives in the genus Oryza, will play a significant role in helping to solve this 10 billion people question due to its place as a staple food for billions. The genus Oryza is composed of 27 species that span 15 million years of evolutionary diversification and have been shown to contain a plethora of untapped adaptive traits, e.g., biotic and abiotic resistances, which can be used to improve cultivated rice. Such traits can be introduced into cultivated rice, in some cases by conventional crossing, and others via genetic transformation and gene editing methods. In cases where traits are too complex to easily transfer to cultivated rice [e.g., quantitative trait loci (QTL)], an alternative strategy is to domesticate the wild relative that already contains the desired adaptive traits – i.e., “neodomestication”. To utilize the Oryza genus for crop improvement and neodomestication, we first need a set of genomic resources that can be used to efficiently identify, capture, and guide molecular crop improvement. Here, we introduce the concept of platinum standard reference genome sequences (PSRefSeq) – a new standard by which contiguous near-gap free reference genomes can now be produced. By having a set of PSRefSeqs for every Oryza species we set a new bar for how crop wild relatives can be integrated into crop improvement programs.
