Definition Of Structural Genomics

Structural genomics is the study of the structure of a genome. The structure is composed of DNA nucleotides arranged in chromosomes. Within the sequence of nu-cleotides are ones that have specific functions, whether the function be regulatory, protein encoding, providing attachment sites for proteins, or just separating other functional DNA segments. The ultimate structural ge-nomics end point would be the complete sequence of the genome. The term structural genomics is less commonly used today than comparative or functional genomics.
