What is Genomics?

Genomics is the field of science that focuses on the study of an organism’s entire set of genes, collectively known as its genome. Genes are segments of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) that contain the instructions for building and maintaining an organism. The genome is like a blueprint for an organism’s growth, development, and functioning.
