The Master’s programme in Omics is a unique educational programme. The study of Omics concerns research in the post-genomic area of bioscience where data from public available databases are crucial in the designing of experiments and the interpretation of the attained data.
The Omics approach is based on a holistic view of research combining hypothesis based research with data and technology based research. Omics is an objective investigation which seeks to describe the full situation in the chosen biological system and is therefore in contrast with the traditional reductionistical view which is applied in biochemistry, molecular biology etc. Omics encompass several different approaches such as proteomics, transcriptomics, interatomics, and metabolomics. For instance, proteomics concerns the study of (potentially) all expressed proteins in a given biological system.
The Master’s degree in Omics is the result of an international collaboration between the University of Southern Denmark, Aarhus University, the Technical University of Denmark, the University of Copenhagen, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Science (GUCAS) and the Sino-Danish Centre for Education and Research (SDC).
