The genomes from three mammals (human, mouse, and rat), two worms, and several yeasts have been sequenced, and more genomes will be completed in the near future for comparison with those of the major model organisms. Scientists have used various methods to align and compare the sequenced genomes to address critical issues in genome function and evolution. This review covers some of the major new insights about gene content, gene regulation, and the fraction of mammalian genomes that are under… CONTINUE READING
