The ambitious goal of having an overall human genome sequence available
resulted in the development of better technologies for DNA sequencing.
Microorganisms were also put into genomic projects and biological
databases are continuously inundated with huge amounts of information.
My main goal is to use genome sequences to understand how genes are
organized into functional modules, which genes keep their functions
across organisms, and which are sources for functional innovation.
