Scientists in the United States and India are reporting development of
a high-protein variety of rice, dietary staple for half the world's
population.
Researchers have been trying to bolster the protein in rice for five
decades. Rice already is a main source of calories as well as protein
intake for billions of people, and its enrichment of protein would
have a positive impact on millions of poor and malnourished people in
developing countries, the report says.
