Launch of the Nutritious Rice for the World Project
12 May 2008   

World Community Grid is pleased to announce the launch of the Nutritious Rice for the World project. The mission of this project is to predict the structure of proteins of major strains of rice. The intent is to help farmers develop better rice strains with higher crop yields, promote greater disease and pest resistance, and utilize a full range of bioavailable nutrients that can benefit those people in regions where hunger is a critical concern.
