genomicsGenomik (ger.)

  • The scientific study of genomes, using gene mapping, nucleotide sequencing, and other techniques; the branch of molecular biology concerned with the structure, function, and evolution of genomes. (OED 2011)
    For the newly developing discipline of mapping/sequencing (including analysis of the information) we have adopted the term Genomics. We are indebted to T. H. Roderick of the Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, for suggesting the term. [...] The new discipline is born from a marriage of molecular and cell biology with classical genetics and is fostered by computational science
