Are protein functions continuous or discretized? Proteomics investigations are starting to address this non-trivial awesome question focusing upon determining the nature of biological molecular relationships. In the following editorial we present a number of experimental studies published in this themed Proteomics Issue demonstrating the development of a new analogical vision for the interpretation of genotype-phenotype relationships. New metrics and languages are evolving, which may complement the insufficiency based on a binary digital interpretation of biological phenomena, providing new tools for the interpretation of large scale-experimental studies.
