<p class="style5"><font size="2">The Canine Phenome Project is an effort to describe the dog as a species in all of its variability and to understand the factors, both genetic and non-genetic, that contribute to this variability. It is an open-ended attempt to describe and understand the basis for all of the characteristics (or phenotypes) of dogs in great detail. The emphasis will be on describing those characteristics that distinguish one breed from another and those characteristics that distinguish one individual from another within a breed. In this context we consider the canine phenome to consist of all aspects of the dog including size, anatomy and appearance, composition and metabolism, behavior and temperament, and health and disease susceptibility.&nbsp;<br />

The genome of <em>C. elegans</em> was completely sequenced and approximately 20,000 genes are predicted. To identify genes that play crucial roles in the developmental program of this organism,&nbsp;They have been performing a systematic analysis of gene functions in <em>C. elegans</em> by a high-throughput RNA interference (RNAi)</font></p>
