The Challenge: Real world application of omics endpoints

Citation:

Bencic, D. The Challenge: Real world application of omics endpoints. ENVIRONMENTAL TOXICOLOGY AND CHEMISTRY. Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, Pensacola, FL, 34(4):700, (2015).

Impact/Purpose:

Omics technologies are increasingly being used in a variety of ways and, as such, have shown promise to enhance ecological studies. These molecular tools have the potential to provide needed discriminative ability and context to traditional ecosystem assessment and monitoring methods. Researchers representing three different sectors of the scientific community shared their views as to what experimental challenges currently limit the implementation of these molecular endpoints and/or what solutions are needed to demonstrate the novel and added benefit of these technologies in ecological studies.

Description:

The increasing use of ‘omics technologies in a variety of applications has shown promise to enhance future ecological studies. These molecular tools have the potential to provide needed discriminative ability and context to traditional ecosystem assessment and monitoring methods. Researchers representing 3 different sectors of the scientific community shared their views as to what experimental challenges currently limit the implementation of these molecular endpoints and/or what solutions are needed to demonstrate the novel and added benefit of these technologies in ecological studies.
