In 7-8 years, all 100,000-odd genes will be identified and their position
in the human and rodent genomes known. The next phase of science will be
to understand what the gene products do during development and disease.
Thus, a buzz phrase for the next century will be "(dys)functional
genomics." We are considering offering a hands on mini course that will
prepare investigators to take genomic sequences and ascertain
functionality. The big question, of course, is whether there is an
interest in this area of scientific inquiry.
