With the advent of new technologies and acquired knowledge, the number of fields in omics and their applications in diverse areas are rapidly increasing in the postgenomics era. Such emerging fields-including pharmacogenomics, toxicogenomics, regulomics, spliceomics, metagenomics, and environomics-present budding solutions to combat global challenges in biomedicine, agriculture, and the environment. OMICS: Applications in Biomedical, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences provides valuable insights into the applications of modern omics technologies to real-world problems in the life sciences. Filling a gap in the literature, it offers a broad, multidisciplinary view of current and emerging applications of omics in a single volume.
Written by highly experienced active researchers, each chapter describes a particular area of omics and the associated technologies and applications. Topics covered include:Proteomics, epigenomics, and pharmacogenomicsToxicogenomics and the assessment of environmental pollutantsApplications of plant metabolomicsNutrigenomics and its therapeutic applicationsMicroalgal omics and omics approaches in biofuel production Next-generation sequencing and omics technology for transgenic plant analysisOmics approaches in crop improvement Engineering dark-operative chlorophyll synthesis Computational regulomicsOmics techniques for the analysis of RNA splicingNew fields, including metagenomics, glycomics, and miRNABreast cancer biomarkers for early detectionEnvironomics strategies for environmental sustainability
This timely book explores a wide range of omics application areas in the biomedical, agricultural, and environmental sciences. Throughout, it highlights working solutions as well as open problems and future challenges. Demonstrating the diversity of omics, it introduces readers to state-of-the-art developments and trends in omics-driven research.
