You can now access the genome sequence data of 3,024 rice varieties as an AWS Public Data Set. The data contains over 30 million genetic variations that span across all known and predicted rice genes, as well as potential regulatory regions surrounding these genes.

Through analysis of this data, researchers can identify important agronomic traits such as crop yield, climate stress tolerance, and disease resistance. Together, they represent an unprecedented resource for advancing rice science and breeding technology. More in-depth analyses of this dataset could lead to inferences about higher yield and stress tolerance to pests, diseases, and climate change.
