Why is it more important to understand the human proteome than the human genome?
The proteome is perhaps of more interest because this is the collection of proteins in a given cell, tissue or organism, whereas the genome is the collection of genes. The proteome is important because these are the actual proteins in the cell, the ones that are being transcribed from the genome, as many of the bases in the genome are different regulator sequences, etc, that never get expressed.
Although personally, both are of equal importance to understand. Hope that helps. =]
