Diversity, SNP, and Trait Data at MaizeGDB

About diversity, SNP, and trait data at MaizeGDB

MaizeGDB is working with the Schnable lab, the Panzea project, The Genome Reference Consortium, and iPlant Collaborative to create a plan for archiving, dessiminating, visualizing, and analyzing diversity data.

Please contact us if you are preparing a proposal for a project that will generate diversity data.


SNPversity allows you to compare SNPs across a diverse selection of inbred lines.
Search genotype data at Panzea.
Search GBS data at Panzea.
TYPSimSelector: Sort lines from the Ames Diversity Panel based on IBS (Identity by State) score.

Types of variation data

  • Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs), including insertions and deletions.
  • Copy Number Variations (CNVs).
  • Presence/Absence Variations (PAVs).
  • Complex alleles. (also called "alternative loci")
  • Sequences which do not align to the reference genome.
  • Inversion break points.
  • Phenotypes.
  • Germplasm via GRIN.
  • Transcript assemblies and exome contigs alignments.
  • Transcript assemblies and exome contigs sequences at GenBank.
  • Expression data at GEO, SRA, and other repositories.
  • Genetic maps.
