Omics, omics, more freaking omics. To many people in the biomedical sciences seems to have this pathological need to carve out their own little corner of biology and give it a name ending with -ome. We have genomics. Fair enough. Proteomics. Fine. Metabolomics. Really? Connectome. Ummmm. Allergenome. For real?
The tumor that is omics has metastasized. We now have "ironomics." Are you kidding me?!?!?!?
