Description:

Maize (Zea mays)—corn—is a staple food source in much of the world, as well as a source of cooking oil, grain alcohol, livestock feed, and biofuel. There is enormous quantitative variation among maize strains for traits of agronomic importance. Buckler and colleagues describe the genetic properties of a new resource for mapping maize quantitative traits, and discuss the genetic architecture of a key trait—flowering time—derived from it.
