Important clues about the anatomy and evolution of the mysterious giant squid (Architeuthis dux) are revealed through publication of its full genome sequence.
Geneticists exploring the dark heart of the human genome have discovered big chunks of Neanderthal and other ancient DNA. The results open new ways to study both how chromosomes behave during cell division and how they have changed during human evolution.
So we may not even have only one genome. Apart from genome mapping, who would know? It doesn’t seem to affect the sense of singular and unique identity. Readers, if you went through a Darwinian biology curriculum in school, do you think it would have sounded quite the same way if this kind of thin
It’s already been done. As a language, DNA can carry malicious messages: People often say that our genome is like a language. For example, a recent science paper explains that “genomes appear similar to natural language texts, and protein domains can be treated as analogs of words.”
