Omics technology

OsloMet researchers and research groups apply different omics-technologies to study the molecules of life, how their variation affects their functions, how they are generated and decay.

Omics applications are characterized by their ability to assess information on all molecules in a single experiment allowing the study each molecule, and their interactions. This provides complete molecular profiles recognized as fundamental to our understanding of health and illness at the highest possible resolution. 

In line with the goals of the Intelligent Health initiative, omics-technology uses technology to achieve positive health outcomes. 

Omics technology at OsloMet

The Omics research network at OsloMet employs and develops technology at the cutting edge, is interdisciplinary and represents extensive collaborative efforts at institutional, national and international levels. 

Health and disease are today largely understood from single molecule perspectives. The omics network provides tools and strategies to investigate health and disease in an integrated and sometimes very complex manner.

Advanced bioinformatics and machine learning are applied to analyse large amounts of data with the purpose of revealing fundamental and pathophysiological biological processes and to discover new associations at the molecular level.

OsloMet scientists working in the omics-field are favoured collaborators with hospitals, other universities and research institutes and can help in the development and implementation of health research projects.
