Greetings, Maize-o-philes!

We have three items at MaizeGDB that you should check out.

1.  The Mo17 SNP are in the Genome Browser!  Visit
http://gbrowse.maizegdb.org/ to view those aligned SNP and other variations
contributed by the DOE's JGI.

2.  Curious about how B73 is being sequenced?  Want to know more about what
you're seeing when you work with sequence at MaizeGDB?  Check out the
"Featured MaizeGDB Tutorials" at http://www.maizegdb.org/tutorial.  The
movie "B73 Genome Caveats" is available in both QuickTime and FLASH formats
via links to the right of the "View Area" toward the top of that page.  This
movie will be updated over time as the Maize Genome Sequencing Project
progresses and as MaizeGDB's representation of the genome improves.

3.  Trying to find all the maize projects on a particular topic?  Browse
POPcorn!  POPcorn (http://www.maizegdb.org/POPcorn/) currently has 42
projects and 76 resources.  Let us know what we're missing - we want this to
be a comprehensive list of projects and soon will implement the ability to
BLAST cooperating projects' sequence-indexed data from one place.

Thanks for your continued help and suggestions! We owe a special thanks to
the Maize Genome Sequencing Project personnel for their help in making the
B73 movie accurate.

Sincerely,
The MaizeGDB Team
