Genome-den (A tale of genome) -Bold changes of genome over 38 billion years-

An elderly man (Shunji Fujimura) found an old scroll in the back of a shed. On the scroll, there was an illustration of the long history of living things. Led by the mysterious power of the scroll, the elderly man entered into the world of evolution, which was interwoven with the genome. There are many genes in the genome, which determine the bodies of the living things. Changes which occur in the genome lead to changes in shape, and these changes further lead to the evolution of living things. For example, changes take this course: the horizontal gene transition >> duplication of the genome >> symbiosis with other living things. Unexpected bold changes of the genome are clearly introduced in interesting ways.
