17a). Once a drug has been discovered that is effective in disease treatment, researchers may dig deeper and try to understand how the drug exerts its effects. In this way, discoverybased science may help us learn about basic concepts in medicine and biology. 17b). Over the past few decades, researchers have identified and begun to investigate newly discovered genes within the human genome without already knowing the function of the gene they are studying. The goal is to gather additional clues that may eventually allow them to propose a hypothesis that explains the gene’s function.

Most of the genetic material in eukaryotic cells is found in the cell nucleus. Its primary function is to encode the proteome. (b) The proteome is the entire protein complement of a cell or organism. Six general categories of proteins are illustrated. Proteins are largely responsible for the structure and function of cells and complete organisms. Concept check: Biologists sometimes say the genome is a storage unit, whereas the proteome is largely the functional unit of life. Explain this statement.
