Plant genomes good… Joe to talk about the importance of deep understanding of a single system. Arabidopsis is the reference plant. Still a lot of unknown. “Sequence enabled science” Systems biology for building a parts-list information. 70M genome project for Arabidopsis. Transcriptome, proteome. Couldn’t find the genes until getting expression. (The teams at TIGR really did a great job with the annotation to make this resource I will say).
Sequencing to capture information about variation, RNA, RNA degradation, alternative splicing, small RNAs, DNA methylation (epigenetic variation). (What browser is he showing, this seems like a custom view, but not sure).
