I would like to draw your attention to a Wiki site http://npgi-workshop.wetpaint.com/?mail=1128
that describes a summary of a recent workshop entitled:
"The National Plant Genome Initiative at Ten Years: A Community
This site contains information (agenda, Rapporteur's summaries,
session/Q&A notes, list of meeting participants and a meeting summary)
related to the recent National Plant Genome Initiative Workshop held
at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Conference Center of the National
Academies in Irvine California on August 26-28, 2008.
The purpose of the meeting was to bring a broad group of stakeholders
together to discuss the outcomes of the first ten years of the US
National Plant Genome Initiative (NPGI) as well as the challenges and
opportunities ahead for the next five to ten years. The NPGI started
in 1998 and is managed by the Interagency Working Group on Plant
Genomes (IWG-PG). The IWG-PG is currently in the process of developing
a new five-year plan using a variety of inputs, including the outcomes
of this workshop.
I hope that you find the information provided useful.
