The next challenge is to uncover the functions of genes predicted by sequence analysis. Considering the amount of effort and the diversity of disciplines required for functional analyses, extensive international collaboration is needed for this next goal. The aims of this review are to summarize the current status of rice mutant resources, key tools for functional analysis of genes, and our perspectives on how to accelerate rice gene discovery through collaboration. deletion mutants - flanking sequence tag - insertional mutants - rice -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hirohiko Hirochika Email:
