The GeneChip™ Rice Genome Array offers researchers comprehensive transcriptome coverage for rice gene expression research. This array contains probes to query 51,279 transcripts representing two rice cultivars, with approximately 48,564 japonica transcripts and 1,260 transcripts representing the indica cultivar. This unique design was created within the GeneChip Consortia Program and provides scientists with a single array that can be used for the study of rice. High-quality sequence data were derived from GenBank™ mRNAs, TIGR gene predictions, and the International Rice Genome sequencing project. The arrays were designed using NCBI UniGene Build #52, (May 7, 2004) incorporating predicted genes from GenBank and the TIGR Os1 v2 data set. (ftp.tigr.org FASTA, 89.3 MB).
