The genomes

4. Analysing a genome

So, what does one do with a complete genome? After all, a sequenced genome consists only of so many bases in a defined order. Analysis is obviously necessary in order to obtain biologically interesting information.

The analysis of a genome covers many different aspects. Here follows a list of the most common ones, but it is clear that entirely novel ways of analysing a complete genome can be invented. The potential for interesting discoveries in the complete genomes is great; we have probably just scratched the surface so far.
