The Rice Genetics Collection of past symposia and other selected literature contains nearly 4,400 pages of searchable information on rice genetics and cytogenetics published by the IRRI and its partners since 1964. In addition to the five genetics symposia held at 5-year intervals since 1985, the collection contains classic publications that kicked off significant reporting on these subjects in the early 1960s. This collection is a comprehensive and historical documentation on the subject of rice genetics, spanning 45 years of research and scholarly work.

Published in 2003, Advances in Rice Genetics is a supplement to Rice Genetics IV. It contains 241 short chapters from various contributors on topics dealing with the genetics and breeding of agronomic traits; genetic diversity, evolution, and alien introgression; molecular markers, QTL mapping, and marker-assisted selection; genomics; gene isolation and function; tissue culture and transformation; and genetics of rice pathogens.
