  • BLAST;
  • comparative genomics


The enormous quantities of data have to be housed in appropriate databases and tools made available with which these data can be analyzed. Sequences have to be assembled, clustered, and annotated. ESTs have to be collapsed into unigene sets. Alignments across taxa are important to identify control regions and significance tests are important to identify important conserved regions. Protein structural information and domain recognition are importantly overlaid on nucleic acid sequence data.
