Special focused issue: Omics and Multi-omics analysis for biomedical applications

Journal of Applied Bioanalysis will be publishing a specially focused issue dedicated to Omics and Multi-omics analysis for biomedical applications. The Journal of Applied Bioanalysis invites the submission of abstracts on topics related to the special issue topic. Abstract proposals will be used to select and invite papers for final review and consideration. Not selected papers for this special issue will be published in a separate regular issue of the Journal of Applied Bioanalysis

Aim and Scope:

Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics have been a key player in the biomedical application for the last 30 years. During the last 10 years, the combination of these techniques or termed as “multi-omics” is getting more popular. One of the major benefits of the multi-omics approach is, it considers the whole biological system as a single source of information and obtain data-rich information from different omics platforms. It helps to obtain knowledge that is more elaborated and comprehensive compared to a single omics platform.

This special issue invites both research and review papers in the field of omics and multi-omics for biomedical applications. Studies devoted to the biomarker discovery, treatment response, untargeted omics analysis of a biological sample are highly encouraged. The issue will also cover the study conducted by omics platform for biomedical problem-solving e.g. infectious disease, cancer research, metabolic disease, and drug development studies. The study described the data processing and chemometrics challenges with relevance on the multi-omics will be included in this special issue.  All submitted manuscripts will undergo a double-blind peer-reviewed process and the decision will be provided within a few weeks of submission.  

Keywords: multi-omics; small molecules; infectious disease, untargeted analysis; chemometrics;

We would welcome the submission of manuscripts for this special issue on following topics (but not limited to):

  • Multi-omics approach for biological sample analysis
  • Biomarker discovery, new drug development or baseline small molecules of the biological system
  • Metabolomics, proteomics study with an emphasis on the biological sample
  • Genomics and transcriptomics studies with the whole system e.g. blood, urine.
  • Chemometrics studied on the data analysis challenge of multi-omics approaches

 Manuscripts submitted, however not accepted for publication in this specially focused issue, but meeting all required publication standards of the Journal of Applied Bioanalysis, will be published in a regular journal issue.
