Rice Chemistry and Technology, Fourth Edition, is a new, fully revised update on the very popular previous edition published by the AACC International Press. The book covers rice growth, development, breeding, grain structure, phylogenetics, rice starch, proteins and lipids. Additional sections cover rice as a food product, health aspects, and quality analysis from a cooking and sensory science perspective. Final chapters discuss advances in the technology of rice, with extensive coverage of post-harvest technology, biotechnology and genomic research for rice grain quality. With a new, internationally recognized editor, this new edition will be of interest to academics researching all aspects of rice, from breeding, to usage. The book is essential reading for those tasked with the development of new products.

About the Editor

Jinsong Bao

Dr. Jinsong Bao is currently a professor in the College of Agriculture and Biotechnology at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. He received his B.S. (1993) and M.S. (1996) degrees in horticulture from Zhejiang Agricultural University, and his Ph.D. degree in biophysics from Zhejiang University in 1999. His research interests are in molecular genetics of rice quality, more specifically in the areas of starch quality, nutritional quality, genetic mapping, and molecular breeding. His current research projects are 1) rice starch biosynthesis, 2) genetic mapping for rice quality and yield, and 3) molecular breeding of new rice high in nutraceutical properties and health benefits. He has published more than 110 peer-reviewed research articles, one book and 11 book chapters in these areas, and has received two professional awards for his achievements in the genetic study and molecular improvement of rice quality from Zhejiang Provincial Government. He has awarded the "Young Scientist Research Award" from AACCI, and Zhejiang Young Science and Technology Award from the Zhejiang Association of Science and Technology. He has traveled and worked extensively in Hong Kong and USA. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in mutational genetics, agricultural biotechnology, and developmental biology in plants. He is an active member of the American Association of Cereal Chemists International (AACCI) and serves as chair of Rice Division, and member of Rice Milling and Quality technical committee. He is also serves as the editorial board member of the Cereal Chemistry (SCI), Starch (SCI), Genes & Genomics (SCI), Rice Science (SCI), and Open Journal of Genetics.
