A power point presentation will be given designed to celebrate corn, also known as maize. The plant is an amazing organism extremely efficient at making food for both human consumption and livestock. In addition, however, the plant is used to produce many non-food materials including alcohol and fuel. And still other uses of the plant are now readily made available. Many geneticists regard maize as one of the best plants for the conduction of genetic research because of its abundant number of known mutations and the ease in using its reproductive cycle. Several Nobel Prize Awardees have used maize to elucidate basic genetic principles, which are now known to be in to be involved in the genetics of other organisms. These research advances will also be part of the presentation.
