Omics is a term used to describe a number of biological sciences that end with -omics. This includes areas of study such as Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics, all of which come from the study of certain objects such as a genome or transcriptome.
Each branch or field of study share a similar aim to discover, define or quantify the biomolecules and molecular processes that impact the form and function of cells and tissues. Genomics for example is the study of all of a person’s genes and how they interact, whilst Transcriptomics looks specifically into gene expression patterns and the study of RNA molecules within a cell.
