Guiding Principles for NPGI, 2003-2008

The NPGI will follow the guiding principles as in the original plan. They have served well for advancing the plant genomics for the nation and are expected to continue to serve the community well for the next five years. To reiterate, those guiding principles are:

  • The Initiative should be viewed as a long-term project, governed by a periodically updated plan based on scientific progress and with stakeholder input as a basis for setting goals and priorities.

  • The Initiative should be viewed as a long-term project, governed by a periodically updated plan based on scientific progress and with stakeholder input as a basis for setting goals and priorities.

  • All research resources, including data, software, germplasm, and other biological materials and research tools should be openly accessible to all in a timely manner.

  • The Federal portion of the Initiative should be coordinated by an NSTC interagency working group with USDA, NSF, DOE, NIH, OSTP, and OMB representation. 

  • All awards should be made based on scientific merit and rigorous, competitive peer review.

  • Partnerships with the private sector and the international community are vital for success.
