The benefit of genomics lies in the speeding up of research efforts in other fields of biology, including neurobiology. Through accelerated progress in positional cloning and genetic mapping, genomics has forced us to confront at a much faster pace the difficult problem of defining gene function. Elucidation of the function of identified disease genes and other genes expressed in the Central nervous system has to await conceptual developments in other fields.
