YCI Laboratory for Trans-omics

Our primary research interests are these two:

 

  1. Reconstructing global metabolic regulatory networks in a 'trans-omic' (*) manner

  2. Developing methods for trans-omics

 

(*) Trans-omic(s) : A discipline to reconstruct a global and multi-layered biochemical network not as a group of indirect statistical correlations but as chains of direct mechanistic molecular interactions, from comprehensive data of multi-omic layers not taken from heterogeneous sources but measured under an identical condition.

 

We perform experiments using mammalian cells to obtain biological samples for measuring time-series omic data of multiple layers. Resultant multi-omic data are subjected to computational analysis for reconstruction of global metabolic regulatory networks, which come across multiple omic layers.
