trascriptome is a typo, I think...

oh my bad, it was typo.
I meant transcriptome. I googled it.
But there isn't much on what transcriptosome is.

The terms were mentioned in some class notes I have. But the notes don't really make much sense without knowing what these two words mean.

I believe transcriptosome refers to the complex of molecules that is involved in transcription, much like the ribosome is a complex of molecules that is responsible for translation.

Wbla3335 is right about transcriptosome - it includes everything that is involved in the production of mRNA. While transcriptome is a set of mRNA produced at a given time by a population of cells.
