A Critique of Functional Genomic Tools

This editorial concisely describes a critical pragmatic insight into omics technologies and gene/cell engineering fields. Omical biotechnologies have emerged as potentially useful tools to explore cell properties and help pragmatically engineer a variety of cells. The omical technologies have enabled breaking cell characteristics into various biochemical, genomic, metabolomic and proteomic components. Such information may be descriptive and be utilized to hasten cell science expansion. However, the secret of taking the real advantage from such omical information lies in the development of practical perspectives that simulate real life scenarios to help tackle the health problems often encountered by the modern man.

Realistically, advanced omical tools such as microarrays generate massive amount of data that can only confuse researchers and exacerbate the problem of how to develop solutions in terms of prevention and treatment, should they not be highly specialized. Cancer, nervous diseases, obesity, and diabetes are amongst the main reasons for today’s reduced life quality, for instance.
