After the conclusion of the second five-year period of the European Science Foundation (ESF) programme on functional genomics, it is time to take stock and evaluate its accomplishments. The programme networked leading scientists from a large number of European countries for strategy discussions about the promotion of functional genomics research, and to arrange scientific meetings and exchange programmes. In brief, I believe this programme has punched above its weight, and that it has successfully contributed to the overall organisation of molecular biosciences in Europe. With a modest annual budget the programme has created several interesting new opportunities, some of which may have yet to show their full impact. However, these mini-reviews are intended to provide a personal perspective on this functional genomics effort, and accordingly I focus on my personal experiences from the ESF programme.
