Examples

  • After two years, Clarke had figured out exactly where to place the cyclodextrin ring inside the nanopore to identify the passing bases.33 As an added bonus, the setup could also distinguish bases that have been methylated, that is, tagged with a small chemical group widely thought to be a crucial mechanism in regulating gene activity a field known as epigenomics.

    The $1,000 Genome

  • This field of study is called epigenomics, and many researchers think it's just as important as genomics.

  • The good news is that this has been the year of discoveries about "omics"--epigenomics, exposomics, nutrigenomics and microbiomics and toxigenomics--that do, in fact, hold the key to unlocking our health and disease mysteries.

  • Ajmal Aqtash, writes that, "The exhibition traces the evolution of Lalvani's genomic art as filtered through two major series, AlgoRhythms™ and XURF™, each exploring Lalvani's principal concern with the relationship between genetic codes and sculptural creation, and more specifically, between "genomics"-sculpture derived from formal rules, and "epigenomics"-works created through external agents like forces, respectively."

  • You would think that despite the publicity about the human genome project, despite good NYT articles on epigenomics, and despite all the sources of information available, the average scientific understanding of the non-science Harvard community seems pretty primitive.

    Academia, Harvard Law School, and freedom of speech

  • Dr. Insel hinted that genetic research into autism is about to undergo a major transformation, from looking at genetic sequencing, "which is what we have been doing for the last decade," to looking at the "emerging field of epigenetics, or epigenomics."

  • Now we also look at all the proteins a cell makes (proteomics), RNA transcription (transcriptomics), molecules that control which DNA gets turned on (epigenomics), and cell energy consumption (metabolomics).

    Three Smart Things You Should Know About Genomics

  • BMC will launch a journal dedicated to Medical Genomics, covering articles on "on functional genomics, genome structure, genome-scale population genetics, epigenomics, proteomics, systems analysis and pharmacogenomics in relation to human health and disease."
