  • Comparing genomes (Comparative gene mapping)
    • This have a number of applications
      • We can carry out changes to DNA on models so we can analyse the effects
      • The DNA of individuals can be analysed so we can look at whether certain individuals are more at risk of developing particular diseases such as cancer
      • Could learn which pathogens cause disease
      • Comparing DNA of different species displays evolutionary relationships
