OMICS technologies are playing an increasingly important role in biomedical research, the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry, as well as healthcare. They are particularly important in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in personalised medicine. For those who want to work and contribute to cutting edge research at the intersection of biotechnology and data science IMC Krems now offers a new part-time English-language master programme: Biotechnology and OMICS Data Science!

OMICS unravelled

OMICS technologies represent a relatively new field of research, describing the integration of various molecular biology methods ending in "-omics". OMICS technologies enable the simultaneous measurement of all molecules within a specific class in biological samples, providing a comprehensive picture of a biological system. OMICS analyses, for example, can identify indications of existing or potential future diseases.
