proteomics [(pro-tee-ohm-iks)]

A new and evolving field of science that seeks to specify all the proteins produced by a cell in all types of situations and environments and to understand how they function. Because proteins are the product of information coded for in DNA, proteomics is closely allied to the study of the genome.
