"F ive years ago, I was looking at nine areas of an animal’s genome. If I got up to 20, I felt I was doing really good. Now I have a grad student working on sage grouse who's looking at 600,000 regions of its genome. I have another working on gray wolves who's looking at 166,000 regions. Now our big question is: What do we do with all that data?"

Michael Schwartz, director of the National Genomics Center for Wildlife and Fish Conservation on the University of Montana's Missoula campus, discussing ongoing research that identifies specific components of the genetic blueprint carried in every organism’s chromosomes.
