"The dog is the latest animal to have its genome sequenced. Shadow belongs to Craig Venter, the researcher whose privately funded project sequenced the human genome using his own DNA."

"The new sequence reveals that 18,473 dog genes have human equivalents. This already surpasses the 18,311 known from the mouse sequence. The team also found genes related to a dog's life: they have many more that are linked to smell than we do."

"The researchers assembled 6.22 million sequences of canine DNA for 1.5X coverage, or 78 percent, of the genome."

""In little more than a decade genomics has advanced greatly and we now have approximately 150 completed genomes, including the human, mouse and fruit fly, in the public domain," Craig Venter, president of TCAG and the J. Craig Venter Science Foundation, which paid for the dog genome research, said in the statement. "Our new method is an efficient and effective way of sequencing that will allow more organisms to be analyzed while still providing significant information.""

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
