GT's Listome

Premium

These days, the proliferation of new words springing from the world of “omics” is almost as high-throughput as genome-scale sequencing. Genome Technology’s staff spent some time compiling a list — er, excuse us, that’s a “listome” — of the ’omes out there. We would love to say it’s comprehensive, but by the time this is published, no doubt each of the ’omes here will have spawned more generations to contribute to the epidemic.
