The NSF funded Maize Genome Sequencing Consortium is pleased to announce the release of a significantly improved version of the B73 Maize Genome Sequence: B73 RefGen_v2.
The complete set of maize FLcDNA clones is available for public distribution.
The Maize Genome Sequencing Consortium publishes the B73 Reference Sequence today in Science. AGI played a leading role by selecting and validating a minimum tiling path of 16,000 BAC clones across the maize genome.
AGI Director, Professor Rod Wing, has won a prestigious Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
UA and Tucson high school students will be involved in the research to help sequence the West African rice genome.
Dr. Rod Wing from the University of Arizona asked, "To Refseq or Reseq Oryza - That is the Question" on March 27, 2009 at the 4th Annual User Meeting.
The UA's Michael Cusanovich and Rod Wing and Tucson High science teacher Margaret Wilch took three of six statewide awards given by the Arizona Bioindustry Association.
