Based at the Iowa State University, the mission of the Plant Genome Research Outreach Portal (PGROP) is "to provide a centralized access point for location plant genome research outreach activities, programs and resources." The site contains fact sheets, lesson plans, and other materials for students and educators, including specifically themed resources on crops like maize, rice, sorghum, soybeans, and wheat. On the right-hand side of the page, visitors can use the "New and Noteworthy" area which contains links to genome databases like the Maize Genetics & Genomics database and the helpful "Fast Plants" website. Also, the "Resources Concerning" area includes peer-vetted links organized by topics like bioinformatics, genomics, molecular biology, and DNA. Finally, the site also contains the detailed report of the National Plant Genome Initiative.
