About the State Key Laboratory of Hybrid Rice

The State Key Laboratory of Hybrid Rice was jointly established by Hu’nan Hybrid Rice Research Center and Wuhan University, approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China in 2011. The objective of the laboratory is to undertake research on: (1) the mechanism of rice heterosis; (2) the mechanism of rice reproductive development and fertility; (3) hybrid rice germplasm innovation and gene discovery; (4) super hybrid rice breeding; (5) hybrid rice seed production; and (6) hybrid rice physiology and ecology of super high-yielding cultivation. The laboratory has so far published more than 600 papers in prestigious journals and received numerous awards, such as National Scientific and Technological Progress Special Award, Second Prize of the Chinese National Natural Science Award, and Second Prize of the National Technological Invention Award.
