Proteomics, Metabolomics and Lipidomics

The ‘omics revolution ensued from the surge in genetic sequencing seen in the 1990s as scientists aimed to sequence the whole human genome. Advances in sequencing and analytical technologies allowed for increased efficiency and precision, and an integrated, comprehensive approach to understanding organisms followed.
This approach is termed “’omics” and includes the following fields; genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, fluxomics, and metabolomics. These fields collectively consider all of their respective constituents.
For example, proteomics is the large-scale study of the entire complement of proteins in cell types or organisms. Unlike it’s predecessors, genomics and transcriptomics, proteomics is more complicated as it involves the consideration of post translational modifications, such as phosphorylation. Proteomics has practical applications in protein networks where the study of ways proteins interact aids the field of systems biology, the computational and mathematical analysis and modeling of complex biological systems. Proteomic technologies can be applied to high-throughput techniques, such as mass spectroscopy.
Over the last 30 years, the ’omics have received attention from the research community, the media, and the public alike, largely owing to the advances in scientific understanding that have resulted from ‘omics research. It remains an exciting and fast-paced field of study that is set to continue expanding our knowledge of biological molecules and systems.
