Really? We need this new omics word in this paper?: CircadiOmics: integrating circadian genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics : Nature Methods : Nature Publishing Group
The good news? I can't actually get the full text of the paper right now so I can't read what they say about this word. The bad news? A lot. First, the definition is in the title. And it is pretty clearly a badomics word. Also, they seem to be serious that other people should use this word without laughing. There is a website: http://circadiomics.igb.uci.edu. Uggh. This is an unnecessary addition to the biology lexicon. Why not just saw "genomics of circadian rhythms"? Does this really need a new word? I don't think so. So I am giving these authors my "Worst new omics word award" though I am not 100% sure how new the word is ..
