Abstract:

With the advent of high-throughput biotechnologies, molecular biology is experiencing a surge in both growth and scope. Not only the next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has generated various genome and transcriptome data, but also mass spectrometry (MS)-based technology comes the opportunity to analyze a vast amount of proteome data. Rapidly advancing technologies have offered us the opportunities to examine the genome, transcriptome, and proteome in comprehensive ways. Yet, extracting meaningful information from this vast sea of data and approaching biological problems from a systems biology perspective have become the Holy Grail in bioinformatics. As the amount of Omics data increases, so is the demand for the development of new schemes to dig out their meanings.

Topic1: Multi-omics Approaches for MicroRNA-related Drug Targets: Potentials and Challenges
