UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Positional (or map-based) cloning is a common approach to identify the molecular lesions causing mutant phenotypes. Despite its large and complex genome, positional cloning has been recently shown to be feasible in maize, opening up a diverse collection of mutants to molecular characterization. • METHODS AND RESULTS Here(More)
The Institute employs faculty teams that concentrate on certain classes of organisms amenable to genetic analysis such as bacteria and fungi (E. coli and yeast), animal systems (e.g., Drosophila), and plants (Arabidopsis, tobacco, and maize). Although the Institute focuses on basic questions in microbial, animal, and plant research, it continues to engage(More)
