Professor Yuan Longping, a World Food Prize laureate for the year 2004, paid a visit to our Microarray facility in October 2004. Professor Longping is the director-general of the China National Hybrid Rice Research and Development Center in Changsha, Hunan, China. His pioneering research has helped transform China from food deficiency to food security within three decades, and spurred the development of rice production in other Asian countries. He is widely acknowledged for developing hybrid rice which exhibits heterosis. Hybrids outperform both parents.
