The increasing number of complete and nearly complete metazoan genome sequences provides a significant amount of material for large-scale comparative genomic analysis. Finding new effective methods to analyse such enormous datasets has been the object of intense research. Three main areas in comparative genomics have recently shown important developments: whole-genome alignment, gene prediction and regulatory-region prediction. Each of these areas improves the methods of deciphering long… CONTINUE READING
