Substrate has provided some pre-defined functional pallets. We need to configure these pallet in our custom runtime in order to use them.

Some of these pallets like pallet_treasury, pallet_collective requires some changes to genesis config. If any one can please share some resource that explains the nitty-gritty of these configurations.
