IPCR Builds Genetic Database for Rubber Tree Research

The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (IPCR/RIKEN) has revealed that it has constructed a gene transcription database which will serve as the basis for research into the genome of the rubber tree. The database makes it possible to use a browser to sequence the genome, find genes and access full-length cDNA. Researchers will be able to use it to...
