Yes, this is a good analogy.

I think it also applies to genomics --- we may have sequenced the human genome (and quite a few others), but we're only beginning to understand what we're actually looking at in it.

Hi, Lindsay, thanks for stopping by! I've enjoyed reading many of the posts on your own blog - I'll be keeping my eyes open for more.
