The Rice Annotation Project (RAP)

was conceptualized in 2004 upon the completion of the Oryza sativa ssp.  japonica cv.  Nipponbare genome sequencing by the International Rice Genome Sequencing Project  with the aim of providing the scientific community with an accurate and timely annotation of the rice genome sequence. One of the major objectives of this project is to facilitate a comprehensive analysis of the genome structure and function of rice on the basis of the annotation.
