ge·nom·ics

(jĕ-nom'iks),
Study of the structure of the genome of particular organisms, including mapping and sequencing.

genomics

(jə-nō′mĭks)
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The study of all of the nucleotide sequences, including structural genes, regulatory sequences, and noncoding DNA segments, in the chromosomes of an organism.

genomics

The science of interpreting genes; the study of an organism's genome using information systems, databases and computerized research tools. See the Human Genome Project.

genomics

The study of the GENOME.

genomics

the development and application of mapping, sequencing, computational and other procedures for the analysis of entire GENOMES, in turn providing an understanding of the structure, function and EVOLUTION of GENES and genomes. Broadly three distinct fields can be recognized:
  1. ‘structural genomics’, involving genetic and physical mapping and sequencing of the genome;
  2. ‘functional genomics’, involving analysis of gene/non-gene function, by using such techniques as cloning (see CLONE), GENE KNOCK-OUT, MUTAGENESIS, BIOINFORMATICS homology searches, and other techniques associated with PROTEOMICS and TRANSCRIPTOMICS;
  3. ‘comparative genomics’, involving comparisons of entire genomes, by using IN SILICO methods for example, in order to understand function, diversity, evolutionary relationships and so on.

Categories (b) and (c) may, more specifically, be described as POST-GENOMICS.

genomics

the science that broadly deals with understanding the genome at the cellular and organism levels.
