Comparative genomics deals with the processes of evolution via the alignment and analysis of genes and genomes of living or extinct organisms related by varying degrees of evolutionary divergence from a common ancestor. Comparisons are usually made pairwise with reference to a third genome 'outgroup' or by examination of pairs of paired sequences and summarized in phylogenetic trees.
