Jones' Homepage for Genomics
Unlike all of the other students in this Genomics, Proteomics and
Bioinformatics class, I am not a biology major, but an Economics major.
However, I find Genetics and its applications to be both fascinating and
elemental in understanding the multitude of innovations and developments that
will characterize the next century of medicine. As the popularization of
the computer led to the explosion of the technology age, so will the practical
availability of genetic information result in the biology age. Most people
I talk to don't even know what Genomics is, let alone Proteomics or
Bionformatics. Ten years ago, most people didn't know what the internet
was, let alone realize the implications it would have on both their personal and
professional lives. Prepare yourself for the next revolution.
page will contain all of the links to the pages I design while learning to think
as a geneticist. I will try to select topics that are interesting to those
of us who are not biology majors, in turn, showing the widest range of people
the important implications this field of study will hold in our lives. I
hope you enjoy it.

is my favorite yeast gene, as it plays a significant role in the aging process
in yeast and mamallian species.
I use microarray data to analyze both Ras1 and YMR086W.
I look into the protein function of both my genes.
