Xenopus genomics, or Xenomics for short, is coming of age. Indeed, biological insight into processes such as growth factor signaling and patterning of the early embryo is now being gained by combining the value of Xenopus as a model organism for cell and developmental biology with genomic approaches. In this review I address these recent advances and explore future possibilities gained from combining this powerful experimental system with genomic approaches, as well as how our quest to understand basic biological principles will be greatly facilitated though the marriage of Xenopus and genomics.
