3. Bioinformatics is a powerful tool in the analysis of genomic sequence. Using computational power and databases the megabases of genemic sequence can be compared within and between species. This allows scientists to identify relationships between genes and begin to examine the function of the protein products produced from genes. For example a new gene can be compared to ...
