Aims and scope

Phenomics is dedicated to publishing the finest articles and communicating scientific process in the field of phenomics.

The phenome is a set of measurable traits, including the physical, chemical and biological traits of individuals and populations, that result from the complex interactions of genes, epigenetics, symbiotic microorganisms, diet and environmental exposures. Phenomics focuses on the study of phenomes at all level (including the proteome and metabolome at the molecular level, cell features at the cellular level, and all kinds of organs at the organismal level), the mechanisms underlying genomic architecture and regulatory networks, the relationships among phenotypes and disease risks and the intervention responses, providing a prerequisite understanding of the health and disease states of mammals.

The topics of interests to Phenomics include but are not limited to high-throughput phenotyping and technological innovations; linking the genome to the phenome with models, algorithms, databases, etc.; exploring the relationships between phenotypes and understanding phenotypic variation and responses to the environment; phenotypic research and its precise application in clinical disease, treatment, prevention and control; phenome-related multiomics studies, novel data fusion approaches and integrated analysis; and phenome-related model organism research, interdisciplinary multiscale research, etc.
