The generation of complete genome sequences for a number of animals has enabled the development of a new archaeology that has allowed us to study the evolution of both gene content and function of diverse species. These studies have revealed surprising new features of the structure of genomes and their evolution as well as uncovered new genetic elements along with insights into how they evolved and their role in biological mechanisms.
