Genome hackers
Genomics is a science discipline which in a broader perspective focuses on the structure and function of genomes and in a narrower concept studies the function of genes (functional genomics). Unlike genetic studies or biochemical disciplines the knowledge of the genome sequence is essential and most of the research is done in silico (via a computer or simulation), based on work with databases. Studies can range anywhere from trying to determine specific interactions between loci and alleles in the genome to investigating the function of a single gene.
