Dear Colleagues,

The Consortium for Maize Genomics is pleased to announce the release 
of data and analysis from the third assembly of ~500,000 
methylation-filtered (MF) and High C0t (HC) genomic sequences 
(Release 3.0) at

Release 3.0 comprises four assemblies:

(1) MF-only (Release3.0MF),

(2) HC-only (Release3.0HC),

(3) MF and HC combined (Release3.0ALL),

(4) Unfiltered (UF) -- random shotgun reads generated from an 
unfiltered maize genomic library -- (Release3.0UF).

In addition we've updated the following features to reflect the Release3.0 AZMs





Since the Release2.0 announcement, we have updated our database of 
maize repetitive sequences which is available for download.  Please 
visit the following link for more information:

In conjunction with the "Sequencing the Maize Genome" project we have 
created a website for the general public ( 
<> ) which aims to provide information and 
updates relating to active maize genomic sequencing projects.  

We are constantly searching for ways to improve our website and to 
make the data produced by the Consortium for Maize Genomics project 
easily accessible and informative to the maize community. As always, 
we welcome your feedback -- please e-mail us at maize at
