maize cobs which could be scored by the students themselves as part of
the practical.  I know that Carolina Biological Supply, and others,
have maize cobs for demonstrating straight genetic results with linked
and unlinked markers but not for mobile genetic elements. 

Can anyone help me find a suitable source, or perhaps suggest an

I would appreciate any suggestions or help.
