<x-flowed>Dear plant science researchers,

Recently, NSF sponsored two workshops to help promote discussions on
the directions for plant research in the next ten years. Reports from
these workshops, held at the Salk Institute and Carnegie Institution
of Washington, Department of Plant Biology, respectively, are posted
on the TAIR website.  The complete texts of the documents and
accompanying reports are available at the following sites.

(1) Realizing the potential of plant genomics: From Model Systems to
the understanding of diversity

(2) The multinational coordinated Arabidopsis 2010 project:
Functional  genomics and the virtual plant: A blueprint for
understanding how plants are built and how to improve them

We welcome your feedback on these reports, and encourage you to send
your comments to NAASC at

The community comments will be collated and given to members of the
Multinational Arabidopsis Steering Committee, who will chair a
Discussion of the 2010 Project goals on Sunday evening of the
Arabidopsis meeting in Madison in June.  Please send your comments to
the Salk email address by the end of the first week in June.
Although the committee reports are a result of the work of a group of
people with diverse scientific backgrounds, we need your input.

Thanks for taking the time to read the reports and providing your suggestions.

Joanne Chory and Joe Ecker, co-chairs
2010 Project Workshop, held January 13-14, 2000 at The Salk Institute
