By 2010, we will have detailed knowledge about the genome of Arabidopsis thaliana from a Linnean-like effort by an international research community to identify nearly all of the genes in the species and to classify the products that these genes encode according to a primary function in a generic plant cell. To know the wild species, however, we will require knowledge of which genes provide the raw material for phenotypic variation and natural selection, and consequently affect the adaptability of individual plants and local populations across their geographic range, and ultimately survival of the species. Natural variation in innate immunity will be at the forefront of this exciting research frontier as a model for the molecular ecology of plant-microbe interactions.
