[Source: GenomeWeb News] – Researchers reported today that they have completed an improved draft version of the corn genome and are already applying information in the genome to learn more about the plant’s biology.

A paper describing the maize sequencing project appears online today in Science, along with several companion papers addressing everything from maize genetic diversity to hybrid vigor. In addition, a collection of papers in PLoS Genetics — and individual papers in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science and Plant Physiology — are providing additional details and analyses related to the project.
