Interpreting the Human Genome Through Computational Biology

The human genome contains some 30,000 to 40,000 genes, many of which are not characterized. "Each gene, of course, will be a story," says Professor Rubin Abagyan. The collection of these genes, these stories, make up the anthology of human life. Whether each story is a Dr. Faust or a Dr. Seuss, a Chekhov or a Tolstoy, will be seen as the genome is annotated with the help of computational biology.
