Just made it up for convenience, stimulated by reading workshop descriptions for the upcoming ICSB 2008 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Here is formal definition:
- the term is used to denote/mention any or all of the modern high-throughput techniques (in all of, but not limited to: genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, …), together with derived/applicable data-processing approaches. All the “networks” things also conveniently fall into the high-throughputomics definition
As this is a general term, it might be even suitable as a conference title (but NOT for ICSB, which I’m waiting for eagerly).
For a shorter and informal (spoken-only) term, putomics can be used:
- spoken-only, informal short form of high-throughputomics
Putomics is also conveniently similar to “computation” (computomics):
- application of computer hardware and software for the analysis of massive amounts of data, obtained using high-throughput methods; this is a research sub-field of high-throughputomics
