Beyond the genome The recent complete genome projects, and the results in the form of analysis and comparison, have driven home the idea that the completeness of the data gives an entirely new dimension to biological science . New types of analysis can be made and new kinds of experiments can designed which simply could not be done before. The realization that the completeness of a data set can be extremely useful has made the biological scientific community look into the possibilities of obtaining other such complete data sets. It has even spawned a number of new buzzwords, some of which are less elegant than others: Description Time dependence Manipulation in the cell Measurement in the cell Genome The complete DNA sequence of the organism. First approximation: none. Genetic manipulation; site-directed mutagenesis, genetic screens. Routine. High accuracy and completeness. Transcriptome The complete set of mRNA transcripts in a cell or tissue of the organism. Reflects the state
