Abstract

How to assign function to the tens of thousands of genes discovered in the chromosomes of a few model species? How to complement the classical genetic approaches that are not always ideally suited to decode complex mechanisms? The solutions to these pressing questions are not simple and rely on the development of novel resources and technologies. Here I critically review what clone collections are available and how they can be exploited for the systematic analysis of gene functions in plants.
