MSc in Omics



The study of Omics concerns research in the post-genomic area of bioscience where data from public available databases are crucial in the design of experiments and the interpretation of the attained data. It builds on holistic research methods which combine the hypothesis-based approach with the data- and technology-based approach. Omics encompass several different areas such as proteomics, transcriptomics, interatomics, and metabolomics. For instance, proteomics concerns the study of (potentially) all expressed proteins in a given biological system.

The Omics approach can be applied in a broad spectrum of companies and institutions operating in various fields, e.g.:: • The biotechnology industry • Companies within the area of medicine production (pharmaceutical companies) • Production and processing of food and ingredients • Hospitals • Universities and research institutions
