- ‘In the postgenomic era, when new technologies are readily available to evolutionary geneticists, the field's attention is shifting to the evolution of expression at the RNA and protein levels.’
- ‘One of the major challenges facing postgenomic research is integrating sequence data with data from the functional analysis of genes.’
- ‘A major task for the postgenomic era is to characterize the full protein complement, i.e. the proteome, for organisms.’
