Until recently, mostly classical genetics and biochemistry were used to investigate how organisms develop, reproduce, behave, age, etc. However, the availability of complete genome sequences suggests additional approaches into biological research. Our goal is to generate and interpret comprehensive protein-interaction maps, particularly in C. elegans. Early versions of protein interaction maps and other functional maps, such as those based on global expression profiling, suggest they will help our understanding of the processes that control the biology of living organisms.
