The Computational Omics group is currently engaged in various Omics approaches with an aim towards various biological research specially in translational science.

Research themes:

The Comp-Omics Lab have focus on following research themes as current areas of focus-

Translational-Omics: Translational–omics’ refers to clinical utilisation of data derived from omics approaches (Genomics/proteomics/transcriptomics/metabolomics). Translational –omics represents the backbone of the precision medicine initiative and offers solutions in global healthcare from a humanitarian, scientific and economic standpoint.

Pharmacogenomics: It refers to the study of how genes affect a individual's response to drugs. This combines pharmacology (the science of drugs, PK-PD) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop effective, safe medications and doses that will be tailored to a individual's genetic makeup

Computational Meta'omics': Meta'omics' based high-throughput technologies producing vast amounts of microbial metadata. These metadata can be utilize to develop novel computational approaches to study the diversity, adaptive capabilities and discover microbiome patterns and profiles that govern significant microbial ecosystems i.e. milk, human diseases, by integrating meta'omics' approaches.
