Germination and seedling phenotypes of normal and transgenic plants. Average performances were calculated for wild-type (WTa, b and c, black bars) and four OsBADH2-deficient lines (OsB2-Ra, b, c and d, grey bars), respectively. Comparison of sprouting index (A) and germination rates (B) between wide type control and transgenic lines is shown. Differences in seedling growth rates indicated as the length of shoot (C), length of root (D), fresh weight of shoot (E) and root (F), and the number of roots (G) are shown between wide type control and transgenics.
