Primers on -Omic Technologies Collection

Progress in genomics and other high throughput “-omic” technologies is promising to revolutionize the practice of epidemiology by providing new tools to measure exposures, susceptibility, and disease outcomes. In order to inform our audience of the various omic fields, the Journal is publishing a primer series for the epidemiologist interested in education about specific omic methods and technologies. Specifically, the series is intended to inform epidemiologists about how to read papers on the topics and what to do if they are interested in integrating emerging methods into their work. Topics in this series include, among others, epigenetics, the microbiome, proteomics, pathogen whole genome sequencing, metagenomics, telomerases, and the exposome. We hope our readers will find these articles informative. We also invite prospective authors to submit articles to be considered for publication in the Journal ’s series on the Practice of Epidemiology.
