Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: MaizeGDB is the maize research community's database for maize genetic and genomic information. In this seminar I will outline our current endeavors including a full website redesign, the status of maize genome assembly and annotation projects, and work toward genome functional annotation. Mechanisms employed to encourage community engagement will be described, and ongoing challenges will be discussed.
