The first decade of molecular analysis of plant cell cycle control genes revealed how well the important regulators are conserved among eukaryotes. The recent completion of the Arabidopsis genome sequence, and the use of increasingly sophisticated biochemical assays and genetic approaches, heralds a period of more detailed functional analysis of cell cycle regulators aimed at resolving their role in plant growth and development.
