Sequencing the Genome of an organism is merely the start. Genome analysis is used to answer questions about each sequences and sequence product such as: what its function is, what are the implications of mutations within the gene, how it is expressed both temporally and spatially throughout life cycle of an organism, what similar gene exists in different species of organisms, what genes are involved in disease. Model organism databases (MODs) are used to organize this information. Analysis of data generated by genome sequencing, Proteomics and array-based technologies is critically vital. Genome analysis answers questions about function and expression of genes.
