The Maize Genetics Cooperation Stock Center is operated by USDA/ARS, located at the University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign, and integrated with the National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS). The center serves the maize research community by collecting, maintaining and distributing seeds of maize genetic stocks, and providing information about maize stocks and the mutations they carry through the Maize Genetics and Genomics Database (MaizeGDB). Users can browse to obtain detailed information about the following stocks:

  • Chromosome 1 Markers
  • Chromosome 2 Markers
  • Chromosome 3 Markers
  • Chromosome 4 Markers
  • Chromosome 5 Markers
  • Chromosome 6 Markers
  • Chromosome 7 Markers
  • Chromosome 8 Markers
  • Chromosome 9 Markers
  • Chromosome 10 Markers
