Technical Abstract: Three exercises are presented to familiarize workshop participants with how to use the MaizeGDB website. The first exercise guides the student through the online MaizeGDB Tutorial and asks questions that can only be answered by having completed the exercise. The second exercise uses the MaizeGDB website to locate seed stock at the Maize Genetics Cooperation - Stock Center to use for crosses intended to determine whether a mutant discovered in the field is a new mutation of a locus which has already been characterized. In the third (optional) exercise a more complex (and realistic) research scenario is described and methods to navigate the MaizeGDB site are described.
