In contrast to the human genome, which consists of 3 billion bases made of 4 nucleic acids organized in a one dimensional space, the human phenome contains an unknown number of elements with variation and dimensionality only partly understood. The scientific understanding of genes and genomic variation is restricted by a narrow range of methods to assess phenotypes allowing only certain anatomical and behavioral traits to be recorded, which is often done manually. Phenomics aims to get a more in-depth and unbiased assessment of phenotypic profiles at the whilewhole organism level.
