Genomics

Genomics

The study of genomes. A genome is the full set of genetic material from an organism. Genomics is an area of research that is concerned with all genes and other functional DNA elements within an organism and how they control the development and life of that organism.

Genomics is a scientific discipline focusing on understanding of all genes, regulatory sequences, and non-coding regions of genomes. Genomes are the set of biological instructions made up of deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA) that create the biological functions of all living organisms. Genomics is the study of the evolution, structure, function, mapping, and editing of genomes. Genomics differs from genetics because it focuses on understanding the genome as a whole, while genetics focuses more on the function of individual genes. Subcategories of genomics include epigenomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics. The primary research tools used for genomic research are high throughput DNA sequencing and bioinformatic technologies.

Researchers at TU Delft have developed a new supercompressible but strong material without conducting any experimental tests at all, using only artificial intelligence (AI). "AI gives you a treasure map, and the scientist needs to find the treasure," says Miguel Bessa, first author of a publication on this subject in Advanced Materials on 14 October.
