Brassica : Harvesting the Genome, Diversity and Products
The main sequencing work (Stage 3) is structured such that many clones can be sequenced in parallel. This provides the opportunity for very rapid progress if sufficient funds are available. Allowing for the effect of the timing of national funding cycles, we should aim for completion of systematic genome sequencing (to Phase 2) by the end of 2007. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, it will be necessary to engage all nations with a significant interest in Brassica as either a crop or model system, and work in a highly cooperative manner.
