Rice (Oryza sativa) is one of the important global food crops, and the increase in its yield is of great significance for ensuring food security and alleviating the food crisis. This study analyzes the research progress and application of molecular breeding in improving rice yield. By revealing the potential role of key yield related genes in improving rice yield and quality, molecular breeding technologies such as marker assisted selection (MAS), genome selection (GS), genetic engineering, and CRISPR/Cas9 are introduced. The principles, applications, and successful cases of these technologies in rice breeding are discussed. In addition, this study also delves into the functional characteristics, gene expression research, functional genomics methods, and strategies and challenges of integrating yield related genes into breeding plans. By summarizing the successful experience, lessons learned, and best practices of molecular breeding in improving rice yield, the aim is to provide valuable reference and inspiration for future rice breeding work, and promote innovation and development in rice breeding work.
