Scientists have used chemical genomics to identify novel compounds that affect the ability of plants to alter their direction of growth in response to gravity, a phenomenon known as gravitropism. Combined with a plant's formidable genetic map, chemical genomics is becoming a powerful new tool in plant biology.
