Database Description

The TIGR Maize Database is a repository of publicly available maize genomic sequences, we have created the TIGR Maize Database (http://maize.tigr.org). In this resource, we have assembled approximately 900,000 gene-enriched reads into Assembled Zea mays (AZM) sequences. The sequences are annotated and anchored to maize chromosomes using available sequenced markers. The database also contains a maize repeat database and the draft sequence assemblies of 287 maize BAC clones, which we annotated along with 172 additional publicly available BAC clones. All sequences, assemblies and annotations are available at the project web site via web interfaces and FTP downloads.


We thank the participants of the Consortium for Maize Genomics project (Robert Citek, Muhammad Budiman, Andrew Nunberg, Joseph Bedell, Nathan Lakey, and Karel Schubert; http://maize.danforthcenter.org) for their valuable contributions. This work was supported by National Science Foundation award DBI-0221536.
