The ten-nation IRGSP is led by Japan's Rice Genome Research Program and was aided two years ago by the Monsanto Company's contribution of its draft rice genome sequence.
I am joined by many others who are working to improve the food security of the world's 800 million malnourished people in applauding the IRGSP for its important work and urging that it be carried to completion.
In addition to Japan, the other countries that comprise the IRGSP are the United States, China, Taiwan, Korea, India, Thailand, France, Brazil and the United Kingdom.
