Omics focus group

The cross-faculty OMICS focus group will organize bi-monthly meetings with research presentations, workshops on laboratory workflows, data analysis, and data interpretation. In addition, the group envisions to organize (bi) weekly data analysis get-togethers. These initiatives are expected to stimulate collaborative synergies between research groups and integrate the expertise and resources from different faculties to improve the adoption of these powerful techniques in the life sciences and biomedical sciences at Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital. Although, at the moment, the group discusses approaches related to transcriptomic, in the future an implementation of other techniques on the agenda (metabolomics and proteomics) is foreseen.


Joanna Kalucka, Dept. of Biomedicine and Christian Damsgaard, Dept. of Biology - Zoophysiology.
