The 53rd annual Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference focused on the dramatic progress that has been made in the past several years in applying large-scale, unbiased data acquisition ("omics") to the study of lung biology and disease. The conference organizers, Mark Geraci, Ivor Douglas, Stephen Rennard, and David Schwartz, put together a terrific program, and the invited speakers and participants presented data describing the rapid evolution of experimental approaches that should encourage pulmonary scientists to begin to think about a true molecular systems biology of the lung.
