Maize is one of the most powerful genetic systems for studying plant biology, and an important model system for the grasses. Key to its utility is the wide range of mutations that have been and can be induced in its genome. Here we review the current uses of mutagens in maize, including the wide range of endogenous transposable elements, as well as chemical mutagens, irradiation, and the use of RNAi silencing. In addition, we describe the extensive resources now available publicly as a result of those mutageneses. Most of these efforts are ongoing and the number of mutant lines available to researchers continues to grow at an ever-increasing rate.
