  • Key message
    • Our results showed that the increased size of vegetative organs in OsEBS-expressed plants was enormously caused by increasing cell number
    • We cloned and characterized qGP5-1 and confirmed that the newly identified gene OsEBS (enhancing biomass and spikelet number) increased plant height, leaf size and spikelet number per panicle, leading to an increase in total grain yield per plant
    • Together, we report the cloning and characterization of OsEBS, a new QTL that controls rice biomass and spikelet number, through map-based cloning, and it may have utility in improving grain yield in rice
    • Identification and characterization of OsEBS, a gene involved in enhanced plant biomass and spikelet number in rice
