ZxGDB encompasses primary sequence data, including the most current genomic sequence, EST and cDNA sequences from GenBank, EST assemblies (PUTs) from PlantGDB, and microarray probes. The mapping of cDNA and EST sequences onto the genome as well as interpretations of the overall data are based on our own spliced alignment results.
The links below, mirrored on our FTP site, provide bzip2 archives of primary sequence used in the current version of ZxGDB, as well as the MySQL tables that comprise the spliced alignment data and coordinates for all aligned sequences. For more information on the current datasets, their sources, and alignment methods, go to our Data & Methods page.
The maize genome assembly is still being refined and completed.
ZxGDB attempts to remain synchronized with the most recent release of the genome sequence or assembly (if any) and annotations.
