What is Genomics?

A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA, including all of its genes. Thus Genomics is the study of the entire genome of an organism and the application of this information.

A gene refers to the unit of DNA that carries the instructions for making a specific protein.

Genes are located on 23 pairs of chromosomes found in the nucleus of a human cell.

They direct the production of proteins with the assistance of enzymes and messenger molecules.

A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA, including all of its genes.

Thus Genomics is the study of the entire genome of an organism and the application of this information.

DNA sequencing is the process of determining the order of nucleotides in DNA. This provides advance knowledge for  the purposes of  diagnosis  and treatment of diseases.

DNA is the hereditary material in an organism which carries all genetic information. It also contains the instructions which makes each one of us unique.
