Genomic Analysis

The mechanics of genomic analysis are both fascinating and rewarding.

Genomic analysis is the identification, measurement or comparison of genomic features such as DNA sequence, structural variation, gene expression, or regulatory and functional element annotation at a genomic scale. Population genetics is the study of the genetic composition of populations, including distributions and changes in genotype and phenotype frequency in response to the processes of natural selection, genetic drift, mutation and gene flow. A genotype is a scoring of the type of variant present at a given location (i.e., a locus) in the genome, while a phenotype is the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.

Comparative genomics deals with the  alignment and analysis of genes and genomes of living or extinct organisms related by varying degrees of  divergence from a common ancestor. Comparisons are usually made pairwise with reference to a third genome ‘outgroup’, or by examination of pairs of paired sequences, and can form the basis for devising specific phylogenetic trees, which are diagrams that propose  evolutionary relationships among organisms. Phylogenetic trees are hypotheses, not definitive fact
