ATS Core Training Webinar: “Choosing Your Omics,” Available Now!

Over the last decade, exponential advances in the technologies and informatics tools has allowed for the generating and processing of large biological data (omics data). These omics data include not only genomics, transcriptomics, proteinomics, but also metabolomics, epigenomics and pharmacogenomics.

Last month, the ATS Core Training Webinar series focused on genomics, summarizing how the data are generated, analyzed and shared, and provide an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of this global approach. Now, the webinar is available to view on the ATS website!

Watch now!
