1,001 Arabidopsis Genomes Will Enable Researchers to Link Genotypes to Traits

The goal of the one- to two-year project, planning for which began last year, is to enable researchers to conduct genome-wide association studies to correlate phenotypic differences with genotypic variation in the plant. As a proof-of-concept, the organizers recently published the genomes of three Arabidopsis strains, sequenced on Illumina’s Genome Analyzer platform.
