Punctuation. n. the use of periods and other marks in sentences. From Latin punctus point or prick, punctuare to mark with points or dots; related to punctual, prompt; punctuality, exactness or precision; less closely to punctilio n. detail of honour, conduct or ceremony. In the language of infection punctuation is concerned only with the written form i.e. the genome, its corresponding proteome and their identifiable functions. These belong to the emerging field of omics (genome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome etc) which is awash with linguistic metaphors notably including translational science. (more on punctuation).
