The executive summary and full report of an NSF-supported meeting to
discuss strategies for sequencing the maize genome have been posted
on MaizeDB ( click on "new" and view
the entry for 10 August).

There seems to be strong support at many levels for such an
initiative.  Hence, I encourage you to take a few minutes to read
through these documents.

Vicki Chandler, Jeff Bennetzen and I would welcome your feedback.
