Integrated Animal Systems Biology

Integrated Animal Systems Biology is a new approach to integrate biological information from the micro to macro levels (genes - mRNA - protein - organ - system - multiple systems - whole animal) which provides a more comprehensive understanding of functions and interactions of complex biological systems in animals. Integrated Animal Systems Biology uses “omics” analytical techniques and bioinformatics integrated with traditional measurements of animal growth to discover “cause and effect” relationships. Analytical techniques include metabolomics, transcriptomics, molecular genetics, metagenomics, bioinformatics, intestinal sensing, signaling, and cell differentiation. Learn more about Integrated Animal Systems Biology.
