o·mics

 (ō′mĭks, ŏm′ĭks)
n.
1. (used with a sing. or pl. verb) Analysis of large amounts of data representing an entire set of some kind, especially the entire set of molecules, such as proteins, lipids, or metabolites, in a cell, organ, or organism.
2. (used with a sing. verb) Any of the fields employing this approach, as proteomics or metabolomics.

[From -omics, as in genomics, proteomics, etc.]

The so-called omics initiative related to technologies used to study cellular molecules will support researchers as they study the safety and effectiveness of vaccines as well as other ways to fight infectious diseases
16 Sessions covering exciting topics in Omics sciences, and kicking off with a refreshing session on bioethics and education.
IFM's 2015 Annual International Conference, The Omics Revolution: Nature and Nurture, will serve as the launch site for the first presentation in the series, "Functional Medicine and Genomics: A Match Made in Heaven.
This technology collaboration will focus on developing novel strategies to integrate Beckman Coulter's world- leading automation platforms into OMICS workflows including genomics by improving sample preparation for transcriptome profiling and DNA population sequencing on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) platforms and metabolomics, focusing on increasing sample throughput in both environmental and clinical mass spectrometry metabolomics studies.
In these reports, omics refers to "the study of related sets of biological molecules in a comprehensive fashion.
There are large challenges in developing the exposome concept into a workable approach, including the consideration of multiple, longitudinal time periods of interest and of temporal variability, the acknowledgement of exposure uncertainty in an exposome study, the integration of omics data, and the development of powerful statistical techniques to analyze the associations between exposome data and adverse health end points.
Ultimately, biomarkers that are discovered and validated through omics research are expected to help in the following ways:
Their topics include functional genomics analysis of key bacterial traits involved in rhizosphere competence during microbial-host interactions, screening phylogenetic and functional marker genes in soil microbial ecology, soil metatranscriptomics, soil volatile organic compounds as tracers for microbial activities in soils, and classical techniques versus omics approaches.
Beall is not afraid to name and shame, as in the case of India- based OMICS Publishing's allegedly predatory practices.
Tokyo, May 19, 2011 - (JCN Newswire) - A new gene expression technique adapted for single molecule sequencing has enabled researchers at the RIKEN Omics Science Center (OSC) to accurately and quantitatively measure gene expression levels using only 100 nanograms of total RNA.
