Rice Gene Nomenclature

Newly identified rice genes can be registered online at

The Committee on Gene Symbolization, Nomenclature and Linkage (CGSNL) of the Rice Genetics Cooperative has revised the gene nomenclature system for rice and the latest version is available at the following URL:

According to the above documented rule, all new gene names should be approved by and registered with the CGSNL to avoid confusion and duplication. To prevent duplicated registration, the system reveals your registered gene symbol, BUT NOT OTHER INFORMATION, to the public even before the paper is published.

If you find any genes missing from the "Published Gene List" although they appeared in the published papers, please also use this online system to notify them.
