The massively increased breadth of sequence variability information allows new avenues in plant research
Research report (imported) 2013 - Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology
The introduction of novel sequencing technologies has led to a massive expansion of genomic sequence information. Completely sequenced genomes of hundreds of different ecotypes of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana are now available. Applying bioinformatics methods, the extensive sequence information can be exploited for the identification of trait associated genes or novel regulatory elements.
