The road to 10,000 plant genomes

Nature Plantsvolume 4pages312313 (2018) | Download Citation

Diversity in plant genomes remains largely unexplored. The 10,000 Plant Genome Sequencing Project is a landmark effort to catalogue plant genomic variation, representing a major step in understanding the tree of life. The project offers new opportunities to study biological processes and address fundamental research questions.
