Information about assembly Zm-DK105-REFERENCE-TUM-1.0
(also known as DK105)
to learn about maize genome and gene model nomenclature rules.
Genome Sequencing Project Information
The enormous diversity of maize is reflected by a large number of SNPs and substantial structural variation. To remedy the scarcity of sequence resources for the Flint pool, a reference sequence was generated de novo from inbred line DK105. DK105 is an inbred line obtained from the German Flint landrace 'Gelber Badischer Landmais'. The DK105 reference sequence complements the maize pan-genome with European Flint diversity.

A contig is a contiguous consensus sequence that is
derived from a collection of overlapping reads.
A scaffold is set of a ordered and orientated contigs
that are linked to one another by mate pairs of sequencing reads.
