NSF funds $10.2m maize gene sequencing push

of the maize genome is made up of a large amount of highly repetitive DNA including many mobile DNA elements. Unlike Arabidopsis genes, the maize genes are not spaced evenly throughout the genome but instead are clustered in "islands" floating in this large "sea" of repeat DNA.

Together, the two projects will develop the tools needed to undertake large-scale sequencing of maize and will point the way to cost-effective sequencing of other large complex genomes. The resulting sequence data from both projects will be immediately deposited into public databases such as GenBank.
