“-ome” and “-omic” are overused, as Jonathan Eisen has been saying for years, and now the Wall Street Journal has taken notice. There are 404 “-omics” disciplines? It’s so silly that there is now a Badomics generator to invent new terms.
It’s still missing PZomics. I’m serious, it could be a real science, you know…I don’t know why researchers aren’t lining up to get cell samples from me. (There’s probably more money in Venteromics—I say “psshhht!” to their dedication to the principles of true knowledge over mere pecuniary gain.)
