Recently, the science of comparative genomics has begun to revolutionize our understanding of the biological world. In the light of these developments, a new world view is emerging, more coherent than before, and bringing with it exciting opportunities for electrochemical research. In this essay, the author briefly traces the outlines of the new landscape. An attempt is also made to set modern developments within a historical context. Strong emphasis is placed on the role of the electron in biology, and the name “electronomics” is suggested for this general field of research.
