Definition of Genome

Genome: All the genetic information possessed by any organism (for example, the human genome, the elephant genome, the mouse genome, the yeast genome, and the genome of a bacterium). Humans and many other higher animals actually have two genomes'a chromosomal genome and a mitochondrial genome'that together make up their genome.
