Google Trends: proteomics,metabolomics,bioinformatics

I have ben playing around with Google Trends, since its launch last week.

And one of the areas I research in is Metabolomics.

I got into this after doing a graduate degree in Bioinformatics. Now, when I began bionformatics was a buzz word back in 2003. So i decided to use this new offering from Google to check what's more popular. I plugged in proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics.From the looks of it, bioinformatics is still leading.Metabolomics is a mere blimp, which can be attributed to the nascency of the field. (Though some might argue that its been around for ages, but I guess the name has not gathered enough momemtum yet)Also note the cities/regions where the searches are coming from. There are 5 cities from Asia, with 3 from India.A sign of things to come?





I am an Informatics Specialist, involved in analysis and visualization of biological and clinical data. Photography is what I do in my spare time. I live in Cambridge, MA.

This blog is the medium to showcase one photo per post from what I shoot. I will try to do post one a day!
