-omics, -ome, -omes

(Greek: said to be a stem for "all, every, whole", or "complete"; that is, a field of study in biology that refers to the whole set of omics including their -omics and -ome subfields in order to understand life as a holistic existence and organic beings as a whole)

Bioinformatists and molecular biologists are thought to be among the first scientists to start to apply the -ome suffix in several scientific areas.

Bioinformatics is an information science that analyzes life processes using computational tools for solving biological problems and to give direction or an overview in biology.

Ome and omics are convenient ways to describe a holistic way of looking at complex systems. In the mid 1990's bioinformatists started realizing the convenience of -omics and used terms for many fields; such as, metabolome, textome, interactome, bacteriome, eukaryome, functome, patentome, neurome and so on.

Omics was coined by scientists to present the realization of the importance of information processing in biology that was proposed by many biologists and as such, it was made possible by the development of personal computers and personal computer operating systems; such as, Windows, Linux, and Apple.

The complement of sugars, whether free or present in more complex molecules, of an organism.
The study of biological effects of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), most of which are organohalogens like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated naphthalenes (PCNs), polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDEs), and hexachlorobenzene (HCB).
All the interactions between biological entities in cells and organisms considered as a whole.
The study of systems biology a biology-based inter-disciplinary study field that focuses on complex interactions in biological systems used to describe a number of trends in bioscience research.
A discipline at the intersection of bioinformatics and biology that deals with studying both the interactions and the consequences of those interactions between and among proteins, and other molecules within a cell of the body.
About regulated genes which include the processes that cells and viruses use to regulate the way that the information in genes is turned into gene products.
The mineral nutrient and trace element composition of an organism representing the inorganic component of cellular and organismal systems.
The study of the ionome which requires the application of elemental analysis technologies, and their integration with bioinformatic and genetic tools.

Ionomics can capture information about the functional state of an organism under different conditions including those driven by genetic and developmental differences, and by biotic and abiotic factors.

In molecular biology, the set of protein kinases in its genome.

Kinases are enzymes that catalyze phosphorylation group to a protein or other organic molecule reactions (of amino acids) and fall into several groups and families; for example, those that phosphorylate the amino acids serine and threonine, those that phosphorylate tyrosine and some that can phosphorylate both.

Phosphorylation is the addition of a phosphate group (inorganic acid mineral) to a protein or other organic molecule.

The lipids in cells which are one of the four major molecular components of biological organisms, along with proteins, sugars and nucleic acids.

Lipidome is a new term coined in the context of omics in modern biology, within the field of lipidomics (large-scale study of pathways and networks of cellular lipids in biological systems).

Lipids are naturally occurring molecules that includes fats.

The large-scale study of pathways and networks of cellular lipids (molecules which include fats, waxes, sterols, and fat-soluble vitamins) in biological systems.
The body, or ome, of data including cell and molecular processes relating to force and mechanical systems at molecular, cellular, and tissue length scales; that is, the fundamental "machine code" structures of the cell.

Ome refers to a field of study in biology ending in -omics; such as, genomics (organism's hereditary information) or proteomics (large-scale study of proteins; especially, their structures and functions).

The mechanical systems within an organism.
The complete set of small-molecule metabolites; such as, metabolic intermediates, hormones and other signalling molecules, and secondary metabolites to be found within a biological sample; such as, a single organism.

The metabolome is dynamic, changing from second to second.

The "systematic study of chemical fingerprints that specific cellular processes leave behind"; specifically, the study of their small-molecule metabolite profiles.

The metabolome represents the collection of all metabolites in a biological cell, tissue, organ, or organism, which are the end products of cellular processes.
