    • Data Management and Study Planning
      Data Management involves formatting and cleaning data, annotating it with standard terms from a  widely-adopted trusted standard vocabulary or terminology, storing it in a database or spreadsheet program. Study Planning involves planning how to study the data with either a statistical test or a data mining study.

    • Epigenomics
      Epigenomics is the study of the complete set of epigenetic modifications on the genetic material of a cell, known as the epigenome. Epigenetic modifications are reversible modifications on a cell’s DNA or histones that affect gene expression without altering the DNA sequence.

    • General Omics Topics
      The Omics Forum invites discussions on the best strategies to collect your own health data, analyze and understand it, and later share or sell it to the scientific research community and the pharma industry for new medical discoveries and better, healthier lives for all of us.

    • Metabolomics
      Metabolomics is the scientific study of chemical processes and involves the comprehensive detection and identification of metabolites . The metabolome represents the collection of all metabolites in a biological cell, tissue, organ or organism, which are the end products of cellular processes.

    • Metagenomics and the Microbiome
      Metagenomics is the study of microbial communities sampled directly from their natural environment (earth, animal/human tissues or fluids), without prior culturing. Metagenomics provides access to the functional gene composition of microbial communities. Post a forum topic in this forum to discuss analysis of whole genome shotgun metagenomic data or of 16S rRNA microbiome data.

    • Model of health: Genome*Exposome=Phenome
      A model for human health and well-being: genome*exposome=phenome Phenomes consist of the physical and biochemical traits of an organism as they change in response to genetic factors (genomics) and environmental and external influences (exposome). Phenome data can involve self-measurement data, such as sensor data, blood test results, among others. Emotions are included in the phenome. They are linked to production of hormones and neurotransmitters which can be measured, and so good and bad emotions can be measured. The exposome can be defined as the measure of all the exposures of an individual in a lifetime and how those exposures relate to health. Exposome data can involve self-measurement data, such as the foods someone eats, the social interactions in one’s life, and environmental influences, among many others. As for the genome, it is a big factor in our health and well-being. Our genome codes how our body reacts to the exposome, while exposure to different environments, foods, situations can modulate or change the pattern of gene expression.

    • Proteomics
      The proteome is the entire set of proteins, produced or modified by an organism or system. This varies with time and distinct exposures, or stresses, that a cell or organism undergoes.
