Histological description of early differentiation of African rice panicle and corresponding stages for expression analysis. O. barthii: ag O. glaberrima: hn. Developmental stages selected for in situ hybridization and qRT-PCR analyses are indicated in lower panel. Stage 1: unbranched stage with elongation of rachis meristem and formation of primary branch meristems; stage 2: early branching stage with at the end the initiation of spikelet meristem differentiation; stage 3: late branching stage with elongated secondary branch and complete spikelet meristem differentiation; stage 4: floret organ differentiation/development. AM axillary meristem, Fl flower, RM rachis meristem, PBm primary branch meristem, PB primary branch, Sp spikelet. Scale bars 100 µm
