Equally important are the mRNA transcripts that carry out the genome’s orders, the proteins they encode, and ultimately, the metabolites upon which they act. Today, thanks to rapid advances in DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, and microarrays, among other technologies, researchers can query these biomolecules on a grand “omics” scale. (Read more at Drug Discovery & Development)
