Summary form only given. The authors describe a hardware and software architectural model for the characterization and analysis of genomes of select organisms. The data for research is obtained by semantically relating existing heterogeneous genetic databases. The authors have developed an architectural model based on associative memory structures at the hardware level and an object-oriented model at the software level. Simulation studies are under way to establish the appropriateness of a system based on a set of tagged associative processors operating in parallel which can be used for gene sequencing and analysis. They have identified primitive instructions on the machine which are consonant with biologists' map manipulation and usage requirements
