Proteomics--the large-scale analysis of a cell's proteins--will come to supplant genomics as the focus of biological research, according to Fields in a lively Future Directions' article. New technologies combined with traditional molecular strategies are revealing what proteins do, what they interact with, and what modifications they carry. Looking to the future, even better technologies and closer collaborations between scientific disciplines will be needed to mine, analyze, and compare proteomics data.
