What is functional genomics?
Understanding biological functions through the use of genomic/transcriptomic data
Investigation of cell functions
Assigns functions to genes
What are some methods in transcriptomics?
in situ hybridisation
digital droplet PCR
What are some methods in proteomics?
What is the transcriptome?
The set of all the mRNA in a cell
What are the discrepancies between protein and mRNA in cells?
