The Maize Genetic Cooperation Stock Center has a continuing program to screen, allele test, locate to chromosome and map new potentially useful genetic markers.
A series of opaque candidate stocks was tested this past summer using the TB series. As a result of these tests opaque-9 has been tentatively located to the long arm of chromosome 5. Additional confirmatory tests will be run next summer.
