Multiomics is a new research methodology in biology in which multiple “omes” data sets are used such as genome, proteome, transcriptome, epigenome, and microbiome. The purpose of combining these data sets is to make the analysis of complex big data more efficiently and to find biomarkers more easily.

For example, in order to find suicide markers in depressed patients, blood sample is collected and subjected to genome, transcriptome and epigenome sequencing to find a common significant marker in that population.

Krogh’s Principle – The Daily Concept

This principle is important to the disciplines of biology that rely on the comparative model and states that for a large number of “problems” there will be some animal of choice on which it can be conveniently studied. Organisms use similar neural algorithms, behaviors and even structures to accomplish similar tasks. For example, in order to understand how the nervous system might localize objects using sound, a researcher can study the barn owl.
