A biochemist looks at how DNA
sequencing can reveal more than
just sequences.
Huge advances in DNA sequencing
have allowed us to readily
determine the sequence of almost
any living (and a few extinct)
species. Yet arguably, most
biological insight comes from
work on five model organisms:
Escherichia coli, baker's yeast,
roundworms, fruitflies and mice.
Unfortunately, many important
biological processes are not
captured in these creatures.
