I will present a number of new approaches to some fundamental problems in comparative genomics and sequence analysis:

1. Using gene order information to confirm orthologous identifications.

2. Using phylogenetic profiles for the phylogenetic analysis of whole genomes.

3. Development of substitution models for the analysis of protein and RNA sequences.
