    Abstract

    Genomics can be defined as ‘the generation of information about living things by a systematic approach that can be performed on an industrial scale’ (Brent 2000). It can be subdivided into structural and functional genomics, with the former being genome mapping and sequencing, and the latter all of the other genomics; trascriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc. In principle, genomics is not very different from conventional genetics performed on a large scale. However, this increase in scale, when accompanied by an increase in the resolution of the data, makes it possible to uncover novel links and relationships between components of a biological system.
