COVER The cover illustrates both the diversity and commonality in living organisms that genome analysis is revealing. The special section (beginning on p. 651) and several related items in this issue highlight progress and look at the future in understanding and using genomic information from a variety of organisms. This year's chart describes advances in the analysis of the genome of the flowering plant Arabidopis thaliana. [Illustration: Katherine Sutliff]
