Multi - OMICs Technology (YU)

High throughput technologies that are employed to study the genome (genomics), transcriptome (transcriptomics), proteome (proteomics), and metabolome (metabolomics) in a global and unbiased fashion together referred to as multi-OMICS technology. Further, these different OMICS data are analyzed in an integrative fashion to bring out more biological meaning from the high-throughput data.

Several companies in India now offer genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics research as well as clinical services based on them. The demand for individuals who are trained in instrumentation, experimentation and data analysis in multi-omics approach is very high.

Scope and Applications

Multi-OMICs technology is essential for advancing medical services and implementation of the new paradigm of Predictive, Preventive and Personalized Medicine (PPPM). PPPM provides a robust platform for predictive diagnostics, targeted preventive measures and treatments tailored to the individual. PPPM is considered as the medicine of the future being focused on the patient’s needs and providing optimal cost-effective solutions for healthcare as the whole. Within this context, multi-OMICs approaches play the crucial role in innovative medical sciences and advanced healthcare services. Other areas which have applications of Multi-OMICs technologies include agriculture; livestock management; dairy and poultry industries where a lot of future discoveries and translation will be driven by these.

The course is designed keeping in mind the requirements of several global and Indian biotech companies. The students trained will be well-versed in multi-omics technologies and data analysis platforms and will be ready to take up various roles in companies including in the area of quality control, marketing, research and development.
