Choosing a New Organism for Genome Sequencing

Many animals, plants, bacteria, and viruses have had their genome sequenced in order to study a certain function or problem related to human biology. Human aging has a connection between aging and the shortening of telomeres, which are highly repetitive DNA sequences at the end of linear chromosomes. For every cell replication, the chromosomes are copied but the DNA polymerase …

About 10 percent of those over age 65, and 47 percent of those past age 85 are estimated to have AD (Andersen, 2005).

Two modes of adaptation

Adaptation is a biological process that involves adjusting to the current conditions of the environment that the organism is in.  The adjustments of the organism are necessary for the organism to survive in the current environment.

Quantitation and Database

Transcriptomic arrays focus on the mRNA binding to its DNA transcription template, identifying the correct originating sequence to characterize gene expression. The signal intensity of the labeled mRNA bound correlates with the level of gene expression. However, a main disadvantage is that the length of the probe sequence and of the DNA target has to be long enough to eliminate …
