Gene Products Advanced Search
Gene product data at MaizeGDB is largely curated from the literature and is not complete. Researchers wishing to find gene models for a particular protein, motif or function should use UniProt (https://www.uniprot.org/). Use CornCyc (https://www.maizegdb.org/metabolic_pathways/) to download gene models assigned to a metabolic pathway.
