The metabolome

We seem to be entering a disturbing new era: Omics warfare.

On one side:

“In retrospect, we wonder why we spent millions on the genome”

On the other:

“The notion that this is a first draft of the human metabolome is nonsense”

And in the sensible middle-ground:

In the long run, the best way to predict an individual’s disease risk is likely to come from understanding the biology behind each disease — and that will come from a combination of genomics, proteomics and metabolomics.

Guys, this stuff is too important for your egos to mess it up. Please get over it.
