The International Rice Informatics Consortium (IRIC) aims to provide access to well organized information about rice, and to facilitate communication and collaboration for rice community, having germplasm diversity as a focal entry point.

Project Objectives

The goal of IRIC (International Rice Informatics Consortium) is to provide information and computational tools to facilitate rice improvement via discovery of new gene-trait associations and accelerated breeding. Hosted by IRRI, the IRIC has three major objectives:

  1. Organize available genotyping, phenotyping, expression and other available data for rice germplasm into a linked, consistent and reliable source of information for the global research community.
  2. Provide user-friendly access to browse, search and analyze the data through a single portal.
  3. Support information sharing, public awareness and capacity building.

Flagship Databases



The tool returns SNPs (and soon, indels) that fulfill user-selected filter criteria, for sets of accessions that you select. Information (phenotypic and passport data) about the re-sequenced varieties are also available here.
