Question: Can your genomes change

How can you tell which sequences code for specific traits of the species?
When a gene is sequenced what information do you get? Just the sequence of bases or more?
do you release the animals after collecting data.
in what way will sequencing the genome of these animals benefit modern biology? will there be any medicinal benefits?
Will any of the animals be harmed during the process of sequencing their genome?
After decoding, is it possible to alter a few things/everything?
Where do you think sequencing will go with species in the next few years – is this the beginning of all species being
