Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is a crucial crop contributing to global food security. Several QTL mapping studies for salinity tolerance have been reported. However, QTLs and markers flanking QTLs for salinity tolerance are not utilized in breeding programs. The main reason is attributed to the large chromosome intervals delimited by those QTLs. Thus, identifying the candidate genes and understanding the salinity tolerance mechanism remained challenging. Identifying markers linked to genes contributing to salinity tolerance during reproduction provides opportunities to breed high-yielding rice varieties for salt stress-affected areas. This study aims to identify genomic regions contributing to salt tolerance at the reproductive stage in rice by using a high-density linkage map.
