Rice is a staple food, consumed by more than half of the world’s population. We cannot afford reduction in the production and productivity, since its productivity has huge impact on the world economics. Still, every year a huge rice produce is ruined owing to several biotic and abiotic stresses. Among all biotic stress causing agents affecting rice crop, two most important are Magnaporthe oryzae causing rice blast disease and Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae causing bacterial leaf blight disease. These are the most important limiting factors in the rice production in almost all rice growing ecosystem of the world. Continuing our earlier efforts in abiotic stress tolerance, here we have collected datasets for blast and bacterial blight related microarray experiments, which are publicly available at NCBI GEO and identified differentially expressed genes under these two stressors.
