Research on functional genomics could include studies in the following areas:
high-precision quantitative trait loci analysis and synteny-based candidate gene selection
transformation tests of candidate genes selected from expressed sequence tag banks
complementation, suppression, and overexpression tests of identified genes via transformation
large population of activation-tagged transgenic trees to directly identify genes for diverse traits
additional bacterial artificial chromosome libraries for trait-specific experiments
