Although these methods are not, in themselves, part of genomics, no reasonable genome analysis and annotation would be possible without understanding how these methods work and having some practical experience with their use. Inappropriate use of sequence analysis procedures may result in numerous errors in genome annotation we have already touched upon this subject in the previous chapter and further discuss it in Chapter 5. We attempted to strike a balance between generalities and specifics, aiming to give the reader a clear perspective of the computational approaches used in comparative and functional genomics, rather than discuss any one of these approaches in great detail.

These monthly indexes are cumulated on a semiannual basis, and are published in the last Bulletin of each semiannual period.
