comment In protein-protein interactions what is the difference between a binding site and an interface?
We can't give you an answer without more context. Neither of those terms is really standard, so what they mean will depend on context. Could you give some examples?

I assume you meant "renamed"

There may be other ways. Please edit your question and explain what you're actually trying to do. What do you mean by "cross annotations"? Do you want to find homologous genes? Syntenic regions? If you tell us what you need, we might be able to help without BioMart.

comment Specific genetic code sequence
@BjørnKjos-Hanssen the main issue is that 1) there is no sequence that is "famous" outside biology, really and 2) within biology there are loads. Most people who've worked in genomics will be able to name at least a few codons (three nucleotide sequences), and other, regulatory sequences. Then there are classic motifs and repetitive elements which are quite well known. If you edit this to clarify the type of thing you are looking for and what you mean by "famous" it could be answerable.

revised What is the difference between sequence, reads, and contigs of genetic material?
assembler != aligner. "Google if you don't know"? You might want to follow your advice :)

comment Programmatic way to differentiate homodimers from heterodimers?
Could you provide us with an example? Preferably one that is a homodimer and one that is a heterodimer.

comment The Uniqueness of DNA Paradox
@Gordon you should also consider that the same DNA would not make the exact same individual. There is a lot of randomness involved. Consider, for example, identical twins and their differences in character. You also have random mutations occurring during an individuals lifetime or development. In any case, you should not confuse 2 people with identical DNA with reincarnation which implies some sort of continuity or link between these individuals.
