Omics: Genomics, Proteomics, Transcriptomics
Lecture no. 36 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 41 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Close by surveying exciting developments in molecular biology that are now unfolding. One area has been dubbed “omics,” based on the explosion of applications due to genomics, which is the decoding of human and other genomes. Thus, we now have “proteomics,” “transcriptomics,” and other subfields, all exploiting our knowledge of the DNA sequences responsible for specific biochemical pathways.
