A <strong>phenome</strong> is the set of all phenotypes expressed by a cell, tissue, organ, organism, or species. A phenome includes phenotypic traits due to either genetic or environmental influences. Just as the genome and proteome signify all of an organism's genes and proteins, the phenome represents the sum total of its phenotypic traits. Some examples of human phenotypes are skin color, eye color, height, or specific personality characteristics. Phenotypic differences between individuals can be due to environmental influences, genetic variation such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), or a combination of the two. Phenomics is the study of the nature of phenotypes and how they are determined, particularly when studied in relation to the set of all genes (genomics) or all proteins (proteomics).&nbsp;<br /><br /><strong>Areas of [[phenomics]]</strong><br />

<h2>&nbsp;<table cellpadding="2" width="550" bgcolor="#ffffff"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="240">The Mouse Phenome Project is an international collaboration representing five countries in both the academic and corporate sectors. <p>This project originated from the <a href="">Strain Characterization Workshop</a> at The Jackson Laboratory in May, 1999 where 37 scientists, representing 17 research institutions and corporations assembled. The overwhelming consensus of Workshop participants was that: <li>Comprehensive phenotypic information on inbred mouse strains is urgently needed because the laboratory mouse, with its hundreds of inbred, specialized, and mutant strains, serves as the primary animal model for exploring genetic variation and human biology. Reliable phenotypic data are essential for realizing the full utility of genomic information that will emerge from sequencing the mouse genome. <br /h2>
