DescriptionGenomics, the study of the structure, function and evolution of the genome, is among the newest and most rapidly growing fields of both basic and applied science, and nearly all of the more traditional disciplines in biology and medicine are being revolutionized by genomic tools. The growing flood of data on the DNA, RNA, and protein sequences of organisms provides unprecedented opportunities to address fundamental biological questions such as the causes of disease, the genetic basis of development, the nature of gene regulation, the extent and causes of adaptive evolution, and the history of species on planet earth, including humans. Genome biology and bioinformatics are highly interdisciplinary fields, encompassing concepts and practices from such diverse fields as cell and molecular biology, evolutionary genetics, and computer science.
