Abstract: Mutants are important materials for research into functional genomics. This paper highlights the creation of rice mutants, variant mechanisms, classification and number of rice mutants, and cloned genes. Up to now, 1 698 mutants and genes and 43 cloned mutant genes have been identified.The prospects of rice mutants are discussed.
