Maize Genetics Cooperation Stock Center Catalog of Stocks

    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).

    Data from: Secretome data from Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger cultivated in submerged and sequential fermentation methods

      The cultivation procedure and the fungal strain applied for enzyme production may influence levels and profile of the proteins produced. The proteomic analysis data presented here provide critical information to compare proteins secreted by Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger when cultivated through submerged and sequential fermentation processes, using steam-explosion sugarcane bagasse as inducer for enzyme production.

      Maize-GAMER: GO Annotations, Methods, Evaluation and Review

        maize-GAMER is a collaborative project to improve the status of gene functional annotation in maize (*Zea mays*). The project has three main areas of focus, namely * Design a pipeline for the functional annotation of maize genes. * Use manually curated test data to evaluate the annotations and generate a best subset of annotations for use * Design a user friendly review system for the community to provide feedback and endorsements of the annotations

        Data from: Bran data of total flavonoid and total phenolic contents, oxygen radical absorbance capacity, and profiles of proanthocyanidins and whole grain physical traits of 32 red and purple rice varieties

          The description of the origin and physical traits of the whole grain (color, length, width, thickness and 100-kernel weight) of this red and purple bran rice germplasm collection are provided along with data of total flavonoid and total phenolic contents, oxygen radical absorbance capacity and total proanthocyanidin contents.

          Data from: Shoot transcriptome of the giant reed, Arundo donax

            The giant reed, *Arundo donax*, is a perennial grass species that has become an invasive plant in many countries. To establish a foundational molecular dataset, an llumina Hi-Seq protocol was used to sequence the transcriptome of actively growing shoots from an invasive genotype collected along the Rio Grande River, bordering Texas and Mexico. The assembly of 27,491 high confidence transcripts (≥200 bp) are reported with at least 70% coverage of known genes in other Poaceae species.

            Data from: Datasets for transcriptomic analyses of maize leaves in response to Asian corn borer feeding and/or jasmonic acid

              Corn's (*Zea mays*) response to initial insect damage involves a variety of changes to the levels of defensive enzymes, toxins, and communicative volatiles. Such a dramatic change secondary metabolism necessitates the regulation of gene expression at the transcript level. This *Data In Brief* paper summarizes the datasets of the transcriptome of corn plants in response to corn stalk borers (*Ostrinia furnacalis*) and/or methyl jasmonate (MeJA). Altogether, 39,636 genes were found to be differentially expressed.
