MaizeMaize (Zea mays ssp. mays) is amazing! Have you ever seen those maize mazes that some corn growers plant? Do you eat popcorn by the handful while watching movies? Did you know that natives from both North and South America worshipped corn gods? This organism has achieved popular recognition like no other, and it also is biologically significant. Telomeres were first described in corn when Barbara McClintock coined the term to describe maize chromosome ends. Who could have known that these genetic elements would gain such fame for their involvement in the aging process? Zea diploperennis, commonly called teosinte, is the wild ancestor of corn, Zea mays ssp. mays. These plants are so closely related that they can still cross hybridize. Browse the pages below to find out more about how maize research has contributed to all scientists' understanding of how genetics works.

2.  BarleyBase
Program: USDA - United States Department of Agriculture
Institution: Iowa State University
Description: BarleyBase is a USDA-funded public repository for plant microarray data. Currently, BarleyBase houses EXP, DAT, CEL and CHP files from the 22K Affymetrix Barley1 and Arabidopsis GeneChips, along with experiment information. Also included are probe sets for grape, rice, soybean, wheat, and maize. [ Map this location ]

3.  Gramene
Program: N/A
Institution: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Description: Gramene is a curated, open-source, Web-accessible data resource for comparative genome analysis in the grasses. As an information resource, Gramene's purpose is to provide added value to data sets available within the public sector to facilitate researchers' ability to leverage the rice genomic sequence to identify and understand corresponding genes, pathways and phenotypes in the crop grasses.

4.  Plant Root Genomics Consortium
Program: Plant Root Genomics Consortium
Institution: University of Missouri, Columbia
Description: The aim of this consortium is to develop an understanding of the molecular mechanisms used by plant roots to acquire water and minerals from the soil, to elucidate the role roots play in adaptation to drought conditions, and to transfer this knowledge to crop improvement through biotechnology.

5.  PlantRBP/POGS Database
Program: Plant RNA Binding Proteins: Tools for Functional Genomics and Application to Chloroplast Biogenesis
Institution: University of Oregon
Description: PlantRBP/POGS is a relational database that integrates data from rice, maize, and Arabidopsis by placing the complete Arabidopsis and rice proteomes, and the available maize sequences into "putative orthologous groups" (POGS). POGS are annotated with domain organization, the results of four protein targeting predictors, and trees illustrating the relationship between POG members and the most closely related proteins in Arabidopsis and rice. The trees contain links that allow users to access related POGs. A graphical display maps maize sequences on to their most similar rice gene model. The database can be queried using any combination of gene name, accession, domain name, and predicted intracellular location, or by using BLAST. The concurrent display of mutual best hits and phylogenetic trees facilitates evaluation of POG assignments, and the display of targeting predictions and domain organization for all POG members reveals consistency (or lack thereof) of those predictions. Detailed annotation efforts are now beginning and will focus on predicted RNA binding proteins. [ Map this location ]
