Directorate for Biological Sciences
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.
