This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

The term “omics” describes a wide range of biological fields, all of which seek to describe how the characterization of molecules translates into the structure and function of an organism. This volume serves as introduction to four of these fields—genomics, pharmacogenomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics—looking specifically, in this case, at the study of omics in relation to human disease. Included in the text are a wide range of chapters that relate omics to:
  • the role of translational and personalized medicine
  • molecular and genetic markers
  • pathogen detection, evolution, and infection
  • companion diagnostics
  • clinical applications and research
This easily accessible reference volume offers a comprehensive guide to one facet in a much larger field of research. Edited by a researcher from the Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics at Case Western Reserve University, Omics in Clinical Practice: Genomics, Pharmacogenomics, Proteomics, and Transcriptomics in Clinical Research is an authoritative and easy-to-use reference, ideal for both researchers in the field and those who wish to gain a better perspective on the field of omics by examining it through the lens of human disease.

The book:
  • introduces genomics, proteomics, and trascriptomics in realtion to human disease and ailments
  • considers the role of translation and personalized medicine in relation to genomics, proteomics, and trascriptomics
  • covers molecular and genetic markers
  • considers the role of genomics, proteomics, and trascriptomics in relation to pathogen detection, evolution and infection
  • covers companion diagnostics in relation to genomics, proteomics, and trascriptomic clinical applications and research

About the Authors / Editors:
Editor: Yu Liu, PhD
Senior Research Associate, Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio

As a bioinformatician, Dr. Yu Liu’s research is centered on the development and application of computational tools for the study of complex diseases. He has extensive experience with data generated from microarrays, next generation sequencing and high-resolution mass spectrometry, and developing bioinformatics tools and applying system biology approach to study complex diseases, like sleep apnea, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancers. More recently, he developed a systems biology approach that enables the discovery of high-level disease mechanisms and provides testing hypotheses for further research. Currently, Dr. Liu is a senior research associate at the Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. He received a PhD in Bioinformatics from Montreal University, Montreal, Canada, and has postdoc training from the University of Toronto, Canada.
