The gene predictions and accompanying functional assignments resulting from the sequencing and annotation of a genome represent hypotheses that can be tested and used to develop a more complete understanding of the organism and its biology. In the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana , we developed a novel approach to constructing whole-genome microarrays based on PCR amplification of the 3 ends of each predicted gene from genomic DNA, and constructed an array representing more than 94% of the predicted genes and pseudogenes on chromosome 2. With this array, we examined various tissues and physiological conditions, providing expression-based validation for 84% of the gene predictions and providing clues as to the functions of many predicted genes. Further, by examining the distribution of expression along the physical chromosome, we were able to identify a region of repressed transcription that may represent a previously undescribed heterochromatic region. [The sequence data from this study have been submitted to ArrayExpress under accession nos.: For the Array Design, A-TIGR-2. For the three subgroups of experiments: AbioticStress, E-TIGR-2; BioticStress, E-TIGR-3; Tissues, E-TIGR-4.] The sequencing of the whole Arabidopsis genome by an inter- national consortium, Arabidopsis Genome Initiative (AGI), be- gan in 1996. Chromosomes 2 and 4 were published in De- cember 1999 (Lin et al. 1999; Mayer et al. 1999), and the remainder of the genome, chromosomes 1, 3, and 5, was com- pleted and published in the winter of 2000 ( Arabidopsis Ge- nome Initiative 2000; European Union Chromosome 3 Ara- bidopsis Sequencing Consortium 2000; Kazusa DNA Research Institute et al. 2000; Theologis et al. 2000). The goal of a genome project is not the collection of the organisms DNA sequence, but rather the identification of the genes encoded within. Consequently, as the Arabidopsis sequence became available, significant effort was devoted to gene prediction...
