After the decade-long effort to sequence B73, maize researchers like Schnable are turning to array comparative genomic hybridization and next-generation sequencing to untangle the differences between distinct breeds of maize, information that can help plant breeders select for better quality crops.

In more than a dozen papers out today, researchers from several different groups describe the corn genome sequencing project and its applications so far.
