The rapidity with which genomic sequences of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and soon of rice are becoming available has strongly boosted plant molecular biology research. Here, two main genomic fields will be discussed: the progress in different structural genome projects, such as mapping, sequencing, genome organization and comparative genomics, and the so-called functional genomics approaches to analyze the genome using such molecular tools as transcript profiling, micro-arrays, and insertional mutagenesis. In addition a section on bioinformatics is included.
