Alignments to Genome
ZmGDB displays high quality spliced alignments for EST, cDNA, PUT, and model species proteins. The current alignment database version is ZmGDB181
. For more information see Data & Methods

Note: sequences displayed here may not reflect the latest Zea mays sequence count at PlantGDB, which can be viewed on our download page.
Sequence analysis tools accessed from the Genome Context View
menu use the current genomic region as input. Or, to access the same tools without a genomic context, use ZmGDB left menubar Tools links.

Gene Structure Annotation
Help annotate the Zea mays
genome using our yrGATE gene structure annotation tool (see Overview
), aided by GAEVAL tables
that flag problematic gene models.
Custom Track Display
Distributed Annotation Service (DAS) (see Overview
) is available for displaying remotely served genome alignments at ZmGDB, as well as for displaying selected ZmGDB tracks on a different genome browser (e.g. Ensembl, GBrowse). How to use DAS...
Additional custom track display features are under development.
Annotated Protein Alignments
A searchable table of splice-aligned, annotated protein models from one or more related species. Select from the left menu under Gene Annotations -> Splice-Aligned Proteins.
