comment Comparing BLAST and the Smith-Waterman algorithm
BLAST uses a heuristic, but mainly to cut down the time spent looking for homologs, not to produce better alignment. So BLAST is not more accurate than S-W, but often times accurate enough.

comment Are there more descriptive ways of naming genes and gene interactions?
@AlexStone: there are pathways that can be given a nice name, e.g. genome.jp/kegg/pathway.html -- but even then there will be more functions to the pathway than what can be encapsulated in the name
