using Bioinformatics tools
Many kinds of analysis can be made using various bioinformatics
tools. These include:
raw information: The experimentally determined sequence
(raw information) is processed using
bioinformatics tools into genes, the proteins encoded and their function, the
regulatory sequences, and inferring phylogenetic relationships.
prediction can be done by using computer programs like GeneMark for bacterial genomes and GENSCAN for eukaryotes.
sequences can be inferred from the predicted genes by using simple computer programs.
sequences: Regulatory sequences can also be identified and analysed by
using bioinformatics tools.
phylogenetic relationships: Information regarding the relationships
between organisms can be obtained by
aligning multiple sequences, calculating evolutionary distance and constructing
Discovery: Using the bioinformatics tools and databases, the functions of
unknown genes can be predicted.
