LMNA Gene Functional Annotation
My assignment asks:"Functional annotation: Identify functional domains in LMNA and its orthologs in different species or paralogs in this species. How do the domains vary between homologs? Has the... more
Overlapping genetic information in eukaryotes?
In my research, I look at a lot of gene predictions / annotations. Frequently, I see loci where multiple gene models overlap. I haven't taken a systematic approach to analyzing these cases, but I... more
Which functional annotations could be useful?
Analyzing a genome, for a generic gene, which functional annotations (e.g from Gene Ontology) can help understanding its meaning/function or, at least, provide helpful informations? - Annotations... more
Why was it so hard to decode the corn genome?
My teachers growing up told me it was impossible to decode the maize genome. But yet its been done. Why was decoding the genome so significant, and what made it so difficult?
Are there differences in DNA between humans of today and humans from 2000 years ago?
Are there any significant differences in our genome compared to the genes of our ancestors from 1000-2000 years ago? And if there are significant differences, do they result in significant... more
