>Genome Anaylsis: Call for Papers

Dear Colleagues,

Completion of the public genomic sequencing effort for Arabidopsis and
increasing availability of cDNA and genomic sequences for crops and other
model plants are creating unprecedented new experimental opportunities
for plant biologists. To coincide with December publication of the full
Arabidopsis sequence in <i>Nature,</i> <i>Plant Physiology</i> will
inaugurate a new feature section called =93Genome Analysis.=94 For
approximately one year, plant biologists will have the opportunity to
provide a more complete account of how access to the first completed
plant genome is sharpening our view of plant biology. The similarity
between genes of Arabidopsis and other plants makes the Arabidopsis
genome a template for those of us studying a wide variety of
photosynthetic organisms. The articles for this section should report
biologically relevant results from the analysis of large genomics-style
data sets or new methods for assessing the value of genomics data. These
types of analyses can help us to determine pathways not previously known
to exist in plants and provide insight into evolution and genetic
mechanisms, to name a very few examples.

These manuscripts should be submitted directly to the <i>Plant
Physiology</i> editorial offices, and they will go through the regular
review process. This section will be handled by Associate Editor Rob
Last. Authors should indicate in their cover letters that a manuscript
should be considered for the =93Genome Analysis=94 section. Any questions
about the suitability of a manuscript for this category should be
directed to Dr. Last (rob.last at cereon.com). <br>
