Kinomics is derived from the word kinome that is the kinase part of the proteome. Kinomics is a merger between genomics and proteomics. Defining the kinase complement of the human genome, the kinome, has provided an excellent starting point for understanding the scale of the problem. This approach combines the understanding of small molecules and targets, and thereby assists the researcher in finding new targets for existing molecules or understanding selectivity and poly-pharmacology of molecules in related targets. Deciphering the complex network of phosphorylation-based signaling is necessary for a thorough and therapeutically applicable understanding of the functioning of a cell in physiological and pathological states.
