Should I use genomics or/and exomics or/and epigenomics? Depends on what you want to look at. Whole genome sequencing will give you all the mutations. If you are interested only in the coding part of the genome then you can go for exome sequencing. Though, exome sequencing will save your time and resources considerably, you may lose out a lot of ...
that's the stated purpose of the thousand genomes project. the thousand genomes project has.. 1000 genomes. its all downloadable. http://www.1000genomes.org/
How about the allele frequency database? http://alfred.med.yale.edu/alfred/index.asp One of the main problems with SNP databases is that there are a lot of them so you can get lost quickly. This sight gives some overview on the available resources: http://www.humgen.nl/SNP_databases.html Hope this helps.
You can try Disgene package in Cytoscape.
NCBI BioSystems help file contains a list of their sources: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Structure/biosystems/docs/biosystems_help.html#SourceDatabases Please specify what you need as stated in the comments as it is almost impossible to give you more (relevant) information then this.
Triacylglycerol synthesis in plants is probably highly conserved. The metabolic pathway is here. The Jatropha genome sequence is also available. Given this some effort has been made to figure out how these genes are regulated. This is a microarray study of Jatropha focusing on fatty acid and TAG biosynthesis. This gives some idea of how TAG genes ...
A database that answers the question, charting telomere repeat sequences for all known species, is: http://telomerase.asu.edu/sequences_telomere.html For example in Yeast:
TTAGG telomeric repeats have been found in several insects. From Sahara, Marek & Traut (1): (TTAGG)n-containing telomeres were found in three Lepidoptera species, the silkworm Bombyx mori (in which the telomeric sequence was recently discovered), the flour moth Ephestia kuehniella, and the wax moth Galleria mellonella, in one species of ...
I think you must have misremembered what you heard. The cut-off distance for genetic linkage is 50 centimorgans which corresponds to 50% recombination. In the human genome 1 centimorgan is approximately 106 base pairs, so the 'unlinked distance' is 5 * 107 base pairs.
Splice junctions are the exon-intron junctions, at which splicing takes place. Splice junction pairs are the pairs of such junction (to cut an intron you need to splice in two junctions). So, you are almost there, since two exons will be joined in correspondence of two subsequent splice junctions. You might find these slides useful (slide B-6)
