The long-term objectives of this project are to synthesize, display, and provide access to maize genomics and genetics data for the research community and applied users. The challenges to be met over the next 5 years will be handling expanding data from maize genome sequencing and providing tools for functional analysis and genetic improvement. To address these challenges, we will focus on the following objectives from 2013-2018:
Objective 1: Support stewardship of maize genome sequences and forthcoming diverse maize sequences.
Objective 2: Create tools to enhance access to expanded datasets that reveal gene function and datasets for genetic and breeding analyses.
Objective 3: Deploy tools to increase user-specified flexible queries.
Objective 4: Provide community support services, training and documentation, meeting coordination, and support for community elections and surveys.
