Para obtener cosechas optimas, el arroz requiere una combinacion de varios factores como: temperaturas suaves, para la subespecie japonica una temperatura minima de 12[grados]C y de 13[grados]C para la subespecie indica; disponibilidad suficiente de agua y trabajo minucioso (Lozano, 2002; Diago, 2002).
Se han logrado rapidos avances en la transformacion genetica del arroz, con importantes resultados en el mejoramiento genetico de variedades elite especialmente de las subespecies japonica e indica (O sativa), sin embargo tambien se ha trabajado mas recientemente en la transformacion de arroces africanos (O glaberrima).
Los primeros en recuperar plantas transgenicas de arroz fertiles fueron Shimamoto y colaboradores en 1989 usando electroporacion en la subespecie japonica y Datta y colaboradores, un ano despues en 1990 empleando PEG en arroz indica.
Un avance significativo fue la transformacion realizada por Chen y colaboradores en 1998 en arroz japonica con multiples genes utilizando biobalistica; Bombardearon tejido de arroz con 14 plasmidos diferentes.
Pero aun asi se puede afirmar que la primera planta transgenica de arroz fue obtenida en 1992 por el sistema Agrobacterium por Chan y colaboradores en la subespecie japonica (Roy et al.
Classifying japonica rice cultivars with RAPD markers.
n] into temperate japonica cultivars, in which case the test cross would be japonica/javanica//indica.
However, during our transfer of genes from indica into japonica, the STS213 marker was predictive of the wide-compatibility genotype and was useful in identifying plants that would most likely lead to sterile progeny in wide crosses.
The second principal component had positive eigenvectors for THR and CT and tended to differentiate the tropical japonicas from the indica group.
The California long-grain cultivars L-202 and L-203 were the earliest among the group, and the California germplasm 87-Y-550 had the best CT score among the tropical japonicas.
The Chinese and Korean japonicas tended to have the best CT scores while the European and USA cultivars had the worst, but the differences were not pronounced.
When relatively few markers are included (less than 30), the japonicas appear as a single group (Glaszmann, 1987).
