DNA resequencing involves sequencing a DNA region where a reference sequence for the region is already available. These studies provide important insight into the function of genes and the evolution of genes and populations. Applications abound including: comparative genomics, highthroughput SNP detection, identifying mutant genes in disease pathways, profiling transcriptomes for organisms where little information is available, researching lowly expressed genes, to identifying newly emerging or genetically engineered bacterial and viral strains.
