Summary of Meeting:
For biologists to fully realize the benefit from the availability of fully sequenced plant genomes, a dramatic change in the current laboratory landscape must be facilitated. Current studies of single genes must transition to large-scale analysis of entire gene regulatory networks. With the expected further reduction in the cost of DNA sequencing technologies, comparisons of a few genomes will be replaced by a broad sampling of plant genetic diversity. Ultimately, the plant biologist must begin to integrate an array of new tools that allow for greater resolution of the chemical complexity of all molecular and cellular interactions - the chemical biology of plants. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together scientists from a broad range of disciplines who are interested in applying a “systems approach” to understand the chemical complexity of plant form and function. The meeting will emphasize the use of new analytical tools to aid plant biologists in exploring and integrating biological systems (genomes, transcripts, proteomics, metabolites, imaging and bioinformatics) at a global - whole plant - level.
