Hi Spiderman,

Proteomics? Transcriptomics? These are buzzwords created more by the investors than the scientists, as these technologies have barely gotten off the ground and already they are named and packaged. Beware... a fire that burns this hot this fast goes out just as fast....

I strongly disagree that these terms have been coined by investors. The first sentence of this article identifies the inventor of the word "proteome":,proteomics

In the meantime, my fellow mad scientists have created other funny words such as "metabolome" and "regulome". There are probably many more "-omics" out there than previously anticipated (chuckles).

Best regards
