The European Scientists Sequencing Arabidopsis (ESSA) programme, value
for money or not?

What are the pros and cons of large scale genome sequencing projects?
What useful information do they yield and what are their limitations?
What are the new challenges and prospects in exploiting the resource of
the complete genomic sequence of a plant species?
Finally would the money have been spent more cost effectively on
otheraspects of research?

Any replies would be most grateful
thank you
