Abstract

Polymorphism over ∼26 kb of DNA sequence spanning 22 loci and one region distributed on chromosomes 1, 2, 3 and 4 was studied in 30 accessions of cultivated rice, Oryza sativa, and its wild relatives. Phylogenetic analysis using all the DNA sequences suggested that O. sativa ssp. indica and ssp. japonica were independently domesticated from a wild species O. rufipogon. O. sativa ssp. indica contained substantial genetic diversity (π = 0.0024), whereas ssp. japonica exhibited extremely low nucleotide diversity (π = 0.0001) suggesting the origin of the latter from a small number of founders. O. sativa ssp. japonica contained a larger number of derived and fixed non-synonymous substitutions as compared to ssp. indica. Nucleotide diversity and genealogical history substantially varied across the 22 loci. A locus, RLD15 on chromosome 2, showed a distinct genealogy with ssp. japonica sequences distantly separated from those of O. rufipogon and O. sativa ssp. indica. Linkage disequilibrium (LD) was analyzed in two different regions. LD in O. rufipogon decays within 5 kb, whereas it extends to ∼50 kb in O. sativa ssp. indica.

Supplementary Fig. 1. Results of multilocus HKA test. Contributions to the overall χ2 test static by the polymorphism and divergence observations for each locus. Squares indicate divergence between African and Asian species, and circles correspond to polymorphism within Asian species. If the observed value was greater than the expected, then the point is placed above the line; otherwise it is placed below the line (JPG 74 kb)
