Rice is a stable food in Asia and many other parts of the world which is getting more and more popular. The rice variety plays an important role in quality of rice products and the decision of their price. Recently, the adulteration of rice varieties happens in many countries due to the commercial interest.

Dr. Kae-kang Hwo, from the Department of Agronomy at the National Taiwan University, established a protocol for rice variety identification with a novel set of 12 simple sequence repeats (SSR) markers, which has been tested by two stages of international ring trials. This identification method has been applied for an ICC Standard and will be introduced during this webinar.

This webinar organised by ICC in cooperation with the China Grain Products R&D Institute and the Department of Aronomy at the National Taiwan University will consist of 

  • 5 self-study tutorials providing recorded presentation and videos
  • A LIVE discussion forum with Prof. Kae-kang Hwu
