Analyzing Plant Diversity

Crop genomes are big!  The maize genome is about 2.3 billion base pairs in size, and there are likely 200 millions variable regions across the genome found in even a modest samples of germplasm.  We actively develop software to analyze these genomes, in order to related diversity to function.
All of our software is open source, and we encourage people from around the world to collaborate on making these better tools.
