The genome contains the instructions for making and maintaining living organisms. It is written in a chemical code called DNA. All living things have a genome.
In modern life science, a holistic way of thinking has emerged with the advent of new, advanced methodologies. By using special technology, researchers can study intricate systems, where innumerable concerted actions take place at each moment.
One such methodology is genomics, where literally thousands of genes (DNA) and their messengers (mRNA) can be studied simultaneously.
