I want to use either of Proteomics or Transcriptomics data for integrating it into my kinetic model. Before proceeding, I want to know what are the advantages of using either of them so that I could make an informed decision on it!
Many studies have shown that the best we can do is integrating both transcriptomics and proteomics data with our kinetic model, but I've some time constraints and have to proceed with only one of those.
My effort and findings: I've found from discussions with researchers that gathering transcriptomics data has an amplification step which increases the chance of finding a particular one whereas gathering proteomics data has no such step but has fragmentation and then rejoining which creates many problems(such as splice variants etc) and thus leads to a loss of data. But a PostDoc told me that even after the loss of that data, I'll get more information from Proteomics data.
I want to know such type of points and want to know if these are valid or not!
