Zea mays

Organism Details
Common Name Maize
Genus Zea
Species mays
Abbreviation Z. mays

Maize is one of the world's most imporant food crops.  Maize was used for pioneering research in genetics but currently lags behind rice in terms of resources for systems genetics studies.  Maize serves as a  candidate for network translational studies as associations implied in the rice networks may be translated to maize.  The gene co-expression network for maize has been constructed from publicly available samples of the Affymetrix Maize Genome array.
