Maize Genome Mapping Project Nears Completion

Producing an integrated physical and genetic map for maize will allow researchers from around the world to more easily identify genetic traits beneficial to maize cultivation, thus expediting the process of developing new disease and drought resistant varieties. With initial funding of $11 million from the National Science Foundation, and the infusion of $2.2 million more NSF dollars in 2002, MU researchers -- along with scientists from the University of Georgia, Clemson University and other prominent institutions of higher learning -- have spent the past seven years working to crack corn's genetic code. Now their work is almost finished: Project researchers say a completed map is due for publication early in 2004.
