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). 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
  • Unplaced Genes
  • Multiple Genes
  • Rare Isozyme
  • B-Chromosome
  • Alien Addition
  • Trisomic
  • Tetraploid
  • Cytoplasmic-Sterile / Restorer
  • Cytoplasmic Trait
  • Toolkit
  • B-A Translocations (Basic Set)
  • B-A Translocations (Others)
  • Inversion
  • Reciprocal Translocations (wx1 and Wx1 marked)

Stock records include information on availability, annotations, related records (genotypic variations, phenotypes), GRIN (Germplasm Resources Information Network) information, and offsite resources.
