Understanding the role that genes play in life is a key issue in biomedical sciences, yet the overwhelming majority of sequences in public databases remain uncharacterized. Functional annotation is important for a variety of downstream analyses of genetic data, yet experimental characterization of function remains costly and slow. This project therefore proposes three Aims focused on improving our understanding of functional genomics, thereby allowing better translation of data to knowledge impacting human health.
