Clearing a path through the jungle: progress in Arabidopsis genomics.

Author information

Department of Molecular Genetics, John Innes Centre, Norwich, England.


Progress in sequencing the genome of the model plant Arabidopsis is reviewed. The resulting analysis of the sequence indicates an information-rich genome that is being tackled by a variety of high-throughput approaches aimed at understanding the functions of plant genes. The information derived from these systematic studies is providing important new knowledge of biological processes found uniquely in plants for comparison with that obtained in other multicellular organisms.
