Elucidation of complete nucleotide sequence of the human has revealed that coding sequences that store the information needed to synthesize functional proteins, occupy only 2% of the genomic region. The remaining 98%, barring few regulatory sequences, has been referred to as non-functional or junk DNA and consists of many kinds of repeat elements. In fact, human genome is the most repeat rich genome sequenced so far, in which more than half of the region is occupied by such sequences… CONTINUE READING
