Researchers have identified a system of three genes that are responsible for hybrid sterility in rice, or the inability of many hybrid rice species to pass their genes on to the next generation. Their findings suggest one way that hybrid sterility is maintained across rice species, and they might also lead to the genetic improvement of rice as a food stock.
