In the DFG-funded project, Caroline Marcon together with her PhD student Yan Naing Win will expand our sequence-indexed collection by sequencing 2,304 mutator-tagged maize mutants in the genetic background of the French inbred line F7. F7 is an important genetic resource for central European maize research due to its stable growth properties under temperate climatic conditions and the availability of its genome sequence. The transposon-tagged maize mutants will be additionally used for forward genetic screens to identify root-specific mutations and to subsequently clone and characterize the related genes.
