This report summarizes allele testing of green stripe mutations
characterized by phenotype only in the Maize COOP Stock Center collection.
Some of these mutations have been found in other COOP stocks and some have
been sent in by cooperators over the years. Crosses were made between plants
known to be heterozygous for the gs* and plants homozygous for gs1
or gs2. In most cases plants were scored at the seedling stage and
again at maturity. Proposed new designations have been assigned to those
alleles for which positive results were obtained. These stocks have been
increased and placed on the 1999 stocklist. It is expected that with further
sorting of mutations characterized by phenotype only, additional green
stripe mutants will be discovered and allele tested.
