Basics of Genomics
Genomics• Understanding the genome of an organism is known as genomics• It includes carrying out studies and research to know the DNA sequences and minute genetic mapping efforts of an organism
Genomes• Genome refers to the full set of DNA of an organism• The human genome consist of 3 billion DNA base pairs that are present in every cell of the body
DNA• To create brain patterns and body structure, the human body needs instructions• These instructions are contained in chemical compounds known as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)• DNA is made of two twisting, paired strands.• Each of these strands is made of four chemical units, called nucleotide bases, which comprise the genetic alphabets. The order of these alphabets creates the information needed for development of the body.
DNA Sequencing• DNA sequencing helps determine the order of nucleotide bases in every strand• Researchers use this process to know genetic variations or mutations that may result into development or progression of a disease
Need for Genomics• Study of genomes, DNA sequencing and RNA seq. helps understand the importance of genetic factors in developing as well as curing complex diseases, like cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular problems• It also aids in enabling medical researchers to create effective diagnostic tools, which may help individual health requirements based on genetic make ups
