      “Liver Physiome” will include metabolome, toxicome, pharmacome, and regenerome, which correspond to the proteomic basis of the main hepatic physiological functions such as metabolism, detoxication, pharmacokinetics, and regeneration, respectively.

      Only now have new genetic, molecular and cellular technologies as well as scientific knowledge of the salamander, mouse and human genomes and ‘regeneromes’ risen to a level where scientists can compare systemwide responses to injury.
