MaizeGDB: The Maize Genetics and Genomics Database


MaizeGDB: The Maize Genetics and Genomics Database

Lisa Harper et al. Methods Mol Biol. .


MaizeGDB is the community database for biological information about the crop plant Zea mays. Genomic, genetic, sequence, gene product, functional characterization, literature reference, and person/organization contact information are among the datatypes stored at MaizeGDB. At the project's website ( ) are custom interfaces enabling researchers to browse data and to seek out specific information matching explicit search criteria. In addition, pre-compiled reports are made available for particular types of data and bulletin boards are provided to facilitate communication and coordination among members of the community of maize geneticists.

Keywords: Database; Genetics; Genome; Genomics; Maize; Model organism database.
