DNA, cells, tissues, and organs. Everything works together to keep your body as functional as possible. But how?

It started as a suffix for "genome" and is now found within the names of all kinds of biological fields — think genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. It's a way of interpreting the relationship between different systems. Just like in a group project, it must be clear who does what. Because if not — as we all know — everything will go wrong.
