A Poisson variety is an algebraic variety equipped with a Poisson bracket on its regular functions. Such a variety carries a natural foliation by symplectic submanifolds. For projective spaces and other Fano manifolds, this foliation is typically highly singular. For example, a conjecture of Bondal predicts that the dimensions of the singular strata are much greater than one would expect from the classical theory of degeneracy loci of bundle maps. I will describe some progress on this conjecture, and related results concerning the classification of low-dimensional Poisson varieties, where elliptic curves feature prominently.
