Biogeochemical Omics

Environmental Omics are becoming the most powerful approaches to discover and study whole novel ecological functions and to link organismal capabilities, organism–environment interactions, functional diversity, ecosystem processes, evolution and Earth history. The OMICS technologies: high throughput studies of changes of genes (Genomics), RNAs (Transcriptomics), proteins (Proteomics), metabolites (Metabolomics), and their associated functions in cells or organisms can be applied to the identify biomarkers, pathways, mechanisms of various environmental processes as well as in alanyzing environmental pollutants/Toxicants. This developing field of research holds significant potential for providing new insights in understanding of the biogeochemical processes.
