A library of information on protein localization for the yeast in the resting state was created using a GFP-tagged yeast strain collection. , 2003). The common theme in most strategies is the cloning of a genomic set of ORFs for subsequent expression in a homologous or heterologous system, followed by biochemical analysis of the expressed proteins. The biochemical analysis is often facilitated by the fusion of protein or peptide affinity tags, such as glutathione Stransferase (GST), His6, calmodulin-binding peptide, etc.

In such instances, for example when regulation is at the level of enzyme inhibitions, cellular responses to environmental stressors may not be reflected in genetic or proteomic expression profiles, as they take place post-expression, and analysis at the metabolome level would be required. , 2001; ter Kuile and Westerhoff, 2001) raise doubts as to whether transcriptomics and proteomics data would suffice in assessing biological function, pointing that metabolomic data may be beneficial and emphasizing the need for investigations at the metabolome level.

An alternative approach to understanding metabolic networks has been taken by researchers in plant sciences. , 2003). , 2003). , 2000). 5 Proteomic and metabolomic fingerprinting and footprinting In instances where a rapid turnover of information needs to be monitored, approaches that adopt short and simple protocols that can still provide the necessary information are highly desirable. Screening of samples/mutants for more elaborate investigations and identification/monitoring of biomarkers representative of specific physiological or disease states are some such instances.
