genome project
Coordinated programme to completely sequence the genomic DNA of an organism. Usually, genomic sequencing is combined with several associated ventures; the physical mapping of the genome (to allow the genome to be sequenced) ; the sequencing of expressed sequence tags (to aid in the identification of transcribed sequences in the genomic DNA sequence) ; for non-human organisms, a programme of systematic mutagenesis, and genetic mapping of the mutants (to infer function of novel genes by reverse genetics) ; and an overarching computer database resource, to manage and give access to the data.
