Comparative genome sequencing of indica and japonica rice reveals that duplication of genes and genomic regions has played a major part in the evolution of grass genomes (See Yu et al.). Like the paper that describes this work, the extensive genomic datasets that were produced are publicly available, for sharing and reuse. The cover shows a child dressed in traditional Han suit, wanting to share his very large bowl of rice.
