The challenge of large-scale functional genomics projects is to build a comprehensive map of the cell including genome sequence and gene expression data, information on protein localization, structure, function and expression, post-translational modifications, molecular and genetic interactions and phenotypic descriptions. Some of this broad set of functional genomics data has been already assembled for the budding yeast. Even though molecular cartography of the yeast cell is still far from comprehensive, functional genomics has begun to forge connections between disparate cellular events and to foster numerous hypotheses. Here we review several different genomics and proteomics technologies and describe bioinformatics methods for exploring these data to make new discoveries.
