The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces its intention to continue support of research to determine the function of all genes in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana by the year 2010. Individual investigators or groups of investigators will be supported to conduct creative and innovative research designed to determine, using all available means, the function of a suite of genes of the investigator's interest and choice. This year, the Program continues to solicit proposals that will use high throughput methods to understand the gene circuitry underlying plant processes and proposals to determine the function of genes of unknown function. Also supported will be development of Arabidopsis functional genomics tools that will enable a broad community of scientists to participate in the 2010 Project.
