Remarkable achievements of modern genomics in bringing the architecture and construction of complete sets of chromosomes haploid organisms paved new directions for the development of life sciences in the next decade. They are based on combining the complex strands of research so far fragmentary descriptions and approaches based. Addressing important issues related cognitive explanation of fundamental problems of development and differentiation of plants , taking into account changing environmental conditions , requires a multi- nurtowych approaches based on complete sets of genes directly or indirectly involved in these processes . One of the main objectives of research based on the achievements of genomics is to assign a biological function of all structural genes and identification of their participation in complex biological phenomena . An interesting methodological concept is to introduce the concept of so-called . minimal genome , and the genome of the LUCA (Last Universal Common Ancestor ) . The molecular biology of plant essential role in the full model organism , as is known , Arabidopsis thaliana . For the combined take of plant gene expression analysis in a global , knowledge of the dynamics of the proteome and to understand the functions of 25 000 genes of flowering plants in the cellular context , organizmalnym ( species specificity ) and evolutionary ( environmental adaptation ) created a large research program " Arabidopsis 2010 " . At the same time the use of mathematical methods and computer simulation work is undertaken on modeling of virtual plants , in which you can analyze the course of the simulation via metabolic pathways during the interaction of plants with other organisms and during their response to environmental stimuli . They are created in this way the basis for a global and precise characterization of the processes of life and learning of mechanisms for biodiversity.
