MS Environmental OMICS
Queens, United States of America
Environmental OMICS is the branch of environmental science that applies OMICS technologies to address environment-related scientific questions. OMICS refers to the technologies used to explore the functions of the various types of molecules that make up the cells of an organism. It aims at the collective characterization and quantification of pools of biological molecules that translate into the structure, function, and dynamics of an organism or organisms. For example, within the field of environmental OMICS, one might study an organism's genome in relation to dietary and environmental exposures using a combination of field, bench, and computational research approaches.
