The scientists tracked the words in the "Iliad" the way they would track genes in a genome.
Scientists extract complete Neanderthal genome from fossil—97 percent match to A&E programming.
And Kandel said the goal of the genome Project, to map all genes in human DNA, was much clearer than BRAIN.
They tend to be in places in the genome which do not have a known disease-related function.
"sum total of genes in a set," 1930, modeled on German genom, coined 1920 by German botanist Hans Winkler, from gen "gene" + (chromos)om "chromosome."
genome ge·nome (jē'nōm') or ge·nom (-nŏm)
A complete haploid set of chromosomes with its associated genes.
The total amount of genetic information in the chromosomes of an organism, including its genes and DNA sequences. The genome of eukaryotes is made up of a single, haploid set of chromosomes that is contained in the nucleus of every cell and exists in two copies in the chromosomes of all cells except reproductive and red blood cells. The human genome is made up of about 35,000 genes. Compare proteome.
