Genomics maps the genetic structure of the living organism, Proteomics explores the ways and means to utilize the molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics to analyze the structure, function and interaction of the proteins, produced by the genes. Data mining is a tool used to extract precious, yet unknown information from huge database to transform the data into useful information.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
