Maize genome data sources
Annotation on the finished genomic sequences was undertaken at PGSB using an in-house gene prediction pipeline with additional manual curation. See Bruggmann et al.
MGSP aims to integrate all publically available genomic sequence data generated within the Maize genome sequencing project. To date, MGSP contains around 100 completed BAC sequences from a random sequencing project as well as two megatile sequences located on chromosome 1 and 9.
MGSP is updated on a regularly basis. Whenever new Maize genome sequences become available they will be integrated into MGSP.
