Genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics are the cornerstones of the so-called 'Omics technologies that are routinely applied in medical research and throughout the drug-development process. In recent years genomic and proteomic technologies, combined with bioinformatics, and rapid progress in high throughput technologies, have made it possible to study gene regulation and protein function in high throughput. In contrast to studies of single genes or single proteins, genomic and proteomic methods simultaneously investigate large numbers of genes or proteins in one single experiment. This capstone subject will focus on the historical development of these technologies to provide a platform from which the key applications, techniques and recent advances in these fields can be appreciated.
