Next Gen sequencing technology

February 15, 2008 at 9:00 am (bioinformatics, funny, genome, sequencing) (, , , )

Just read the above post.. i liked his succint observation summarised below.
There has been almost no mention at this whole meeting of things related to function of genes. For example, I have not heard “gene ontology” once. I do not think I have even heard “annotation” once. Function and process have been replaced by terms like “systems biology” and “SNPs” and “networks” and “massively parallel.
haha I am just beginning to grasp the annotation part of the genome business and I can tell you its no joke.
