Model Organism Sequence and Function Studies Flourish
Model organism genomes sequenced in the Human Genome Project (HGP) have helped researchers identify many functionally important human DNA regions, including genes, and further studies will help elucidate fundamental biological processes common to all species. These organisms include the mouse, fruit fly, yeast, the bacterium Escherichia coli, and the roundworm. Outside the HGP, vast amounts of genomic data are being generated for a variety of microbial, animal, and plant systems. In this section are articles on the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana and the pufferfish Fugu rubripes, followed by those on the laboratory mouse and an algorithm for comparisons of model organisms.
