Plant Genome Research Program
The Plant Genome Research Program
was initiated in fiscal year 1998. It is part of a National Plant Genome
Initiative established by the Office of Science and Technology Policy.
The long-term goal of this program is to understand the structure, organization,
and function of plant genomes important to agriculture, the environment,
energy, and health. The program initiates new collaborative research
and infrastructure projects annually, and provides ongoing support for
activities started in previous years via mechanisms such as virtual centers
and young investigator, individual, and small group awards.
