There seems to be a lot of ' omics' out there beyond genomics. Is something like proteomics related to genetics at all?
Proteomics is the study of all proteins in a cell. Since proteins are encoded by genes, they are definitely related. But since proteins can undergo various types of modifications ( ie. phosphorylation, acetylation etc. ) there are more proteins than genes.
