Report Contents:

  • Chapter 1: The different omics techniques - In this chapter, we will delve into each “omic” and describe the key methods involved, insights derived and things to consider with advice and comments from experts in the field.
  • Chapter 2: Spotlight on single-cell and spatial-omics – Here we explore what makes single-cell and spatial such powerful tools and discuss with our contributors specific considerations to take into account with single-cell or spatial. We also explore how to combine and utilise the best of both approaches together.
  • Chapter 3: The multi-omics approach – A chapter full of case-studies, we explore how combining more than one “omic” can fill in the missing pieces in the “jigsaw” that is human biology and disease.
  • Chapter 4: Data integration and bioinformatics – Data integration is often cited as one of the most challenging aspects of a multi-omics study. This chapter features a roundtable discussion with top developers and researchers, where we go through the specific challenges in data integration and bioinformatics.
  • Chapter 5: Machine learning and AI – The use of AI and ML has allowed researchers to tackle big data at scale – however, these technologies come with their own limitations and considerations, which we cover in depth in this chapter.
  • Chapter 6: The next dimension – time - All biological processes change over time – they are inherently dynamic. In this chapter, we explore innovative computational and experimental approaches that have allowed researchers to introduce temporal context into their multi-omics studies.
