 From Gramene News Blog

We are pleased to announce the release of the MaizeCyc 
(http://www.gramene.org/pathway/) database. Developed by the comparative 
genomics database Gramene (www.gramene.org) and the maize model organism 
database MaizeGDB (www.maizegdb.org) in collaboration with the Maize 
Genome Sequencing Project, MaizeCyc is a catalog of known and/or 
predicted metabolic and transport pathways from Maize (Zea mays mays). 
Pathways and genes presented in this catalog are based on the 
annotations carried out by us on the ‘filtered gene set’ provided as 
part of the release 4a.53 of the cv. B73 maize genome. The database was 
created using the Pathway Tools PathoLogic module developed by Peter D. 
Karp and coworkers at the Bioinformatics Research Group  at SRI 
International. This is a BETA version of the MaizeCyc. In near future a 
formal release will include annotations from the B73 RefGen_v2 gene 
models (as part of Release 5a.59), gene names, synonyms and exciting new 
pathway discoveries.

You are welcome to access the same database served from the following 
mirror sites.

Gramene: http://www.gramene.org/pathway/

MaizeGDB: http://maizecyc.maizegdb.org/

We welcome feedback from the research community to help us build a good 
quality network.  You can reach us by sending a message to MaizeCyc curators

To learn how to use MaizeCyc, please follow the tutorial. MaizeCyc does 
not show up on this tutorial which is a bit outdated. However, follow 
the same instructions to get to the MaizeCyc on the web.

This work is supported by the NSF Plant Genome Research Resource grant 
award #0703908 (Gramene: A Platform for Comparative Plant Genomics)
