The OMICs: Applications in Neuroscience summarizes the state of the art in high-throughput approaches (collectively known as "OMICs") in neurology and neuroscience, and is of interest to both neurologists tracking the progress of these methods towards clinical applications, and neuroscientistscurious about the most recent advances in this ever-changing field. The explosion of high-throughput assays has introduced large datasets, computational servers, and bioinformatics approaches to neuroscience, and medicine in general. The book includes a rich survey of the most relevant OMICs applications and how they relate to neurology and neuroscience. The readeris given an overview of the method, a perspective on the current and future applications, and published examples illustrating practical uses.
Giovanni Coppola, MD, is Director at the Center for Informatics and Personalized Genomics Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles.
