Comparative interactomics: comparing apples and pears?

Lars Kiemer, Gianni Cesareni
2007 Trends in Biotechnology  
The study of the complex web of interactions that link biological molecules in a cell is the subject of interactomics -currently one of the fastest moving fields in molecular biology. The recent completion of highthroughput studies to investigate systematically all the possible interactions in a variety of model organisms has provided unique opportunities to compare interaction networks and ask questions about their conservation during evolution. It is expected that this approach will yield a
