Kernel mutants of corn

Kernel mutants of corn

Specialty corns: 1-28

Information on the genetic variation known to affect the composition, development and structure of maize kernels is reviewed and practical suggestions on the construction of new genotypes are provided. The relationship of genetic variation to the modification of metabolism in the kernel is discussed as well as the potential for creating new variations through genetic engineering.
