Allelism testing of miscellaneous stocks in Maize COOP phenotype only collection --Jackson, JD This report summarizes allele testing of miscellaneous stocks characterized by phenotype only, in the Maize Genetics COOP Stock Center collection. Some of these mutants have been found in other COOP stocks and some have been sent in by cooperators over the years. In most cases crosses were made between known heterozygotes and homozygous plants. Plants were scored at the seedling stage and again at maturity. Proposed new designations have been assigned to these alleles. The stocks with positive tests have been increased and placed on the 2001 stocklist. It is expected that with further sorting and allelism testing of mutations characterized by phenotype only, additional alleles of characterized mutants will be discovered and placed in the main collection.
