Abstract:

Rice straw being rich in cellulose and plentily available, it can serve as the chief renewable biomass resource for biofuel production. Several protocols are now available for efficient recovery of ethanol from cellulosic substrates of rice straw. Rice varieties showing high lignocellulosic straw biomass inherently reveal low harvest index and consequently low grain yield potential. There is an urgent need to reorient the breeding strategies for efficient ethanol production without compromising seed yield. The authors reviewed the scope of rice straw for biofuel (ethanol) production and also the genetic basis for biosynthesis of lignocellulose components and their breeding perspective for development of bioenergy efficient smart varieties in rice.


Keywords: Rice straw, Ethanol production, Genetic basis of cellulosic components
