Mapping the maize genome

Maize is one of the most important cereal crops in the world. The complete genome of maize has been sequenced, but its size and complexity presents a challenge to researchers seeking to identify specific genes responsible for traits. Positional cloning has been used successfully in smaller genomes; researchers have applied this mapping technique to the maize genome and have published their protocol — the first detailed step-by-step protocol on positional cloning — in Applications in Plant Sciences. —> Read More Here
