Omics and Multi-omics analysis for biomedical applications

Journal of Applied Bioanalysis will be publishing a specially focused issue dedicated to Omics and Multi-omics analysis for biomedical applicationsThe Journal of Applied Bioanalysis invites the submission of abstracts on topics related to the special issue topic. Abstract proposals will be used to select and invite papers for final review and consideration. Not selected papers for this special issue will be published in a separate regular issue of Journal of Applied Bioanalysis

Aim and Scope:

Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and the metabolomics have been a key player in the biomedical application for the last 30 years. During the last 10 years, the combination of these techniques or termed as “multi-omics” are getting more popular. One of the major benefits of the multi-omics approach is, it considers the whole biological system as a single source of information and obtain data-rich information from different omics platforms. It helps to obtain knowledge those are more elaborated and comprehensive compared to single omics platform.

This special issue invites both research and review papers in the field of omics and multi-omics for the biomedical application. The study devoted to the biomarker discovery, treatment response, untargeted omics analysis of a biological sample are highly encouraged. The issue will also cover the study conducted by omics platform for biomedical problem-solving e.g. infectious disease, cancer research, metabolic disease, and the drug development studies. The study described the data processing and chemometrics challenges with relevance on the multi-omics will be included in this special issue.  All submitted manuscript will undergo a double-blind peer-reviewed process and the decision will be provided within a few weeks of submission.  

Keywords: multi-omics; small molecules; infectious disease, untargeted analysis; chemometrics;


We would welcome the submission of manuscripts for this special issue on following topics (but not limited to):

  • Multi-omics approach for biological sample analysis
  • Biomarker discovery, new drug development or baseline small molecules of the biological system
  • Metabolomics, proteomics study with an emphasis on the biological sample
  • Genomics and transcriptomics studies with the whole system e.g. blood, urine.
  • Chemometrics studied on the data analysis challenge of multi-omics approaches

 Manuscripts submitted, however not accepted for publication in this specially focused issue, but meeting all required publication standards of the Journal of Applied Bioanalysis, will be published in a regular journal issue. Author guidelines can be downloaded here.

Editor Special Issue

MK96x125Mohammad Sharif Khan PhD (Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, USA).
Dr. Khan is working at Thayer school of engineering at Dartmouth College. For the last 10 years, he has contributed to different fields of analytical chemistry and separation science. His primary interest in on bio-analytical chemistry, multidimensional chromatography, mass spectrometry, metabolomics and omics data analysis. Dr. Khan is the inventor of pressure tuning GC×GC (Pressure tuning comprehensive two dimensional gas chromatography). This innovation was the spotlight for the LCGC article in North America, Europe and Asian edition. Mohammad has also worked on green sample preparation, supercritical extraction, optimization and identification of bioactive molecules from complex matrices and unconventional FTIR, TLC based fingerprinting. Mohammad is recently working on the application of high-resolution omics techniques for clinical application like VOCs from infectious bacteria or breath VOCs to understand the host-microbes interaction mechanism for disease diagnosis, screening, staging, monitoring, surveillance, prediction or prognosis. Mohammad has more than 1000 ciation with a h-index of 10. Mohammad love to play and watch cricket at spare time, like to explore new place and outdoor activity.
