Technical Abstract: MaizeGDB is the Maize Genetics and Genomics Database. Available at MaizeGDB are diverse data that support maize research including maps, gene product information, loci and their various alleles, phenotypes (both naturally occurring and as a result of directed mutagenesis), stocks, sequences, molecular markers, references, and contact information for maize researchers worldwide. Also available through MaizeGDB are various community support service bulletin boards including the Editorial Board’s list of high-impact papers, information about the Annual Maize Genetics Conference, and the Jobs board where employment opportunities are posted. Reported here are data updates, improvements to interfaces, and changes to standard operating procedures that have been made during the past two years. MaizeGDB is freely available and can be accessed online at http://www.maizegdb.org.
