Abstract

Transposon mutagenesis facilitates gene discovery by tagging genes for cloning. New genomics projects are now cataloging transposon insertion sites to define all maize genes. Once identified, transposon insertions are 'hot spots' for generating new alleles that are useful in functional studies.
