Multi-omics: Welcome to the age of the EPIGENOME
In the age of multi-omics, researchers seek to uncover the many layers of biological systems. The image above illustrates the layers of progressive understanding of cellular functions and interactions from studying the genome to understanding the complexities of the environmental interactions through epigenomics. Researchers begin with genome study for the simplicity of understanding DNA sequences and the high level detection of genes. Progressive layers uncover further details: transcriptomics to understand mRNAs, proteomics to uncover protein expression and characterization, and metabolomics to study metabolites. The final epigenome layer is critical. In epigenomics, researchers aim to uncover the complexities of the influence of the environment on the expression of genes, putting the other "omics layers" in a meaningful and relevant biological context.
