The Genome and Gene Resources of Biomass Utilization



For life, one of its most important characteristics is the continuity and stability of genetic information passed from generation to generation. Gene is the carrier and functional unit of the genetic information in all known organisms. Genomes are the total collections of genes in the same cell. Thus, gene and genome resources are the foundation of acquiring and utilizing biomass on the molecular level.
