Welcome to MaizeGDB!

Welcome to the home page of the Maize Genetics/Genomics Database project. The goals of this project are to provide a central repository for public maize information and present it in a way that creates intuitive biological connections for the researcher with minimal effort as well as provide a series of computational tools that directly address the questions of the biologist in an easy-to-use form.

This site is currently under active development and we are looking for as much feedback as possible from all users. If you see something that you would like to see reviewed or changed, or if you find a bug, each page on the site has a feedback link in the lower left corner. Clicking on that link will pop up a small box which you can fill out; you don't need to do anything other than click and give us your message! If you include your email address in the form, we will reply as soon as possible to your suggestions.

Thanks for taking the time to visit our site and give us suggestions. We hope to build a useful research tool for the maize community, designed to meet your needs as effortlessly as possible. By visiting, testing, and sending us your thoughts, you are helping this process along greatly.

Site News

Current Version: v 0.7

October 28: We have a new tool available for examining phenotype data: the phenotype browser. This tool is designed for people who want to just browse through the phenotype data. We provide some filters and are interested in hearing about other filter ideas.

October 23: Take a site tour!

October 18: There's a new data type available: ESTs.

October 16: A new map tool: when you visit a map record (for example, IBM 9, you can now quickly find the other maps from the same experiment at the bottom of the record (in this case, IBM 1-10). In addition, you can also click and find the combined map for all ten chromosomes; for example, here is the complete IBM map.
