The Power of Genomics

The Encyclopedia of DNA Elements, or ENCODE Project, has recently made huge news headlines across the scientific galaxy. 442 scientists in labs across the world recently published 30 studies packed with new discoveries about the human genome. Included in those studies is the assignment of a biochemical function to 80% of the genome, including areas previously defined as “junk” DNA.

In honour of such seminal work, Genome Alberta reminds us of the awesome power of Genomics and how it impacts our every day lives.
