Growth of the so-called 'omics' technologies may appear to be simply a case of giving new, trendy names to boring, old-fashioned technology. After all, who would dispute that genomics is just genetics and molecular biology, glycomics is the study of glycosylation or that metabolomics is simply the study of metabolic pathways? Surely, then, proteomics is just biochemistry. Indeed, students are now told that they are studying proteomics, as there is a tendency to turn off at the mere mention of biochemistry.
