Why channelomics is a naff term, but why it is useful...

It's a term which is being used more and more these days:
Why it's naff is obvious? Omic this omic that it's getting really irritating! Proteome, transcriptome, metabolome, membranome, interactome....

But the trouble is, these areas are able to claim to be areas of research which are self standing.... I have been personally told that you can't just study ion channels... It's too marginal a subject..

So my calculation is that if everyone who works on ion channels and ion channel diseases can bandy about the terms channelopathy, channelome, channelomics.. We might be able to defend the subjects as valuable.
