With the advent of new technologies and acquired knowledge, the number of fields in omics and their applications in diverse areas are rapidly increasing in the postgenomics era. Such emerging fields—including pharmacogenomics, toxicogenomics, regulomics, spliceomics, metagenomics, and environomics—present budding solutions to combat global challenges in biomedicine, agriculture, and the environment. OMICS: Applications in Biomedical, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences provides valuable insights into the applications of modern omics technologies to real-world problems in the life sciences. Filling a gap in the literature, it offers a broad, multidisciplinary view of current and emerging applications of omics in a single volume.

Written by highly experienced active researchers, each chapter describes a particular area of omics and the associated technologies and applications. Topics covered include:
Proteomics, epigenomics, and pharmacogenomics
Toxicogenomics and the assessment of environmental pollutants
Applications of plant metabolomics
Nutrigenomics and its therapeutic applications
Microalgal omics and omics approaches in biofuel production 
Next-generation sequencing and omics technology for transgenic plant analysis
Omics approaches in crop improvement 
Engineering dark-operative chlorophyll synthesis 
Computational regulomics
Omics techniques for the analysis of RNA splicing
New fields, including metagenomics, glycomics, and miRNA
Breast cancer biomarkers for early detection
Environomics strategies for environmental sustainability

This timely book explores a wide range of omics application areas in the biomedical, agricultural, and environmental sciences. Throughout, it highlights working solutions as well as open problems and future challenges. Demonstrating the diversity of omics, it introduces readers to state-of-the-art developments and trends in omics-driven research.
