Traditionally, genomic browsers and databases have indexed exons (and UTRs with exons), but have not properly kept data on all three genomic structures (UTRs, Exons, and Introns). In this post, the problem is dissected, and a solution offered at The Geno.me is discussed.

Evolutionary fitness, in a nutshell, is a measure of how many offspring a person has. To have more offspring is to be more successful (evolutionarily). Polygamists and serial divorcers put themselves at an "evolutionary advantage" by having more wive
