Genomics, structural
The study of the proteome, the three-dimensional structures of thousands upon thousands of proteins, in fact, all of the proteins produced by a species. In the Human Genome Project, the sequence of all the DNA in our genome was largely deciphered. Structural genomics aims to achieve a comparable degree of understanding of the proteome.
