Recent advances in various 'omics' technologies enable quantitative monitoring of the abundance of various biological molecules in a high-throughput manner, and thus allow determination of their variation between different biological states on a genomic scale. Several popular 'omics' platforms that have been used in microbial systems biology include transcriptomics, which measures mRNA transcript levels; proteomics, which quantifies protein abundance; metabolomics, which determines abundance of…

Integrative analysis of human omics data using biomolecular networks.

This integrative approach seeks to unite 'top-down' omics data with 'bottom-up' biological networks in a synergistic fashion that draws on the strengths of both strategies.

The Omics Era and Host Microbiomes

From a fundamental knowledge perspective, no single omics technique can completely disentangle the complexities of host microbiomes, so several ‘omics’ platforms have been developed in order to better understand the systems biology of host-microbiome interactions.

“Omics” and Biomedical Applications

This chapter explores how classical approaches to study biological processes, such as those used in chemistry, biochemistry, immunology, and genetics, intersect with the new omics technologies to advance the understanding of biological systems by examination of case studies of general interest for researchers.

Reproductive biology in the omics era: what can be done?

The main goal of this review is to introduce the reader to the HDB and mass spectrometry and how they could benefit the reproductive biology field.

Beyond Metabolomics: A Review of Multi-Omics-Based Approaches

This chapter discusses the progress of multi-omics in recent years and presents some case studies in multiple fields such as human health, the environment, industrial biotechnology and biofuel studies among others.

Computational Methods to Interpret and Integrate Metabolomic Data

Compared with transcriptomics and proteomics approaches, metabolomics can achieve large-scale quantitative and qualitative measurements of cellular metabolites, which can thus generate a high-resolution biochemical and functional information of an organism.

Multi -omics and metabolic modelling pipelines: challenges and tools for systems microbiology.

The multi-omics promise in context: from sequence to microbial isolate

It is argued that multi-omics information awaits integration into the development of novel cultivation strategies and can build the foundation for a new era of omics information-guided microbial cultivation technology and reduce the inherent trial-and-error search space.

Integrative Analysis of Metabolomics and Transcriptomics Data: A Unified Model Framework to Identify Underlying System Pathways

It is demonstrated that within the proposed framework, genes regulating the production of specific metabolites can be identified correctly unless the variation in the noise is more than twice that of the signal.



Multi-Omics Data-Driven Systems Biology of E. coli

This study uncovered the complementary strategies of E. coli that result in a metabolic network robust against various types of perturbations, therefore demonstrating the power of a multi-omics, data-driven approach for understanding the functional principles of total cellular systems.

Integrative Analysis of Transcriptomic and Proteomic Data: Challenges, Solutions and Applications

Some of the challenges associated with integrative analyses are outlined and some preliminary statistical solutions are presented and some new applications of integrated transcriptomic and proteomic analysis to the investigation of post-transcriptional regulation are discussed.

Transcriptomics, proteomics and interactomics: unique approaches to track the insights of bioremediation.

Exploring the differential expression of a wide variety of proteins and screening of the entire genome for proteins that interact with particular mineralization regulatory factors would help to gain insights into bioremediation.

In this review, the terms describing various metabolite-oriented approaches are given, and the differences among these approaches are outlined.

Metabolomics and fluxomics approaches.

An overview of metabolomics and fluxomics is provided, highlighting stable isotope strategies for fluxome characterization and some of the tools used to quantitatively analyse the control exerted by components of the network over both the metabolome and the fluxome.

Integrative profiling of metabolites and proteins: improving pattern recognition and biomarker selection for systems level approaches.

This chapter describes a straightforward protocol for simultaneously extracting metabolites and proteins from the same biological sample in preparation for MS analysis and outlines all the basic steps, from harvesting to data analysis, that enable the correlative study of metabolite and protein dynamics with minimal technical variation.

Data merging for integrated microarray and proteomic analysis.

Current approaches and challenges associated with integration and analysis of heterogeneous data sets, focusing on global analysis obtained from high-throughput technologies are highlighted.

A Bayesian Integration Model of High-Throughput Proteomics and Metabolomics Data for Improved Early Detection of Microbial Infections

This work presents a Bayesian approach to integration that uses posterior probabilities to assign class memberships to samples using individual and multiple data sources; these probabilities are based on lower-level likelihood functions derived from standard statistical learning algorithms.

Integration of omics data: how well does it work for bacteria?

Several successful examples outlined in this review already show the potential of the systems approach for both fundamental and industrial applications, which would be time‐consuming or impossible to develop solely through traditional reductionist approaches.

Parallel analysis of transcript and metabolic profiles: a new approach in systems biology

Using the techniques described here suggests that metabolic profiling has a higher resolution than expression profiling in the identification of candidate genes for modifying the metabolite content of biological systems.
