About this book

This book examines applications of multi-omics approaches for understanding disease etiology, pathogenesis, host-pathogen interactions. It also analyzes the genetics, immunological and metabolic mechanisms underlying the infections. The book also explores genomics, transcriptomics, translational-omics, and metabolomics approaches to understand the pathogenesis and identify potential drug targets. It reviews the role of epigenetic reprogramming in shaping the host-pathogen interactions and presents bioinformatics application in the identification of drug targets. Further, it examines the potential applications of RNA sequencing and non-coding RNA profiling to identify the pathogenesis. Lastly, it offers the current challenges, technological advances, and prospects of using multi-omics technologies in infectious biology.

About the authors

Dr. Saif Hameed is currently an Associate Professor at Amity Institute of Biotechnology, Amity University, Haryana. Dr. Hameed did his Bachelor’s from the University of Delhi and Masters from Jamia Hamdard and completed his doctoral studies in Life Sciences from Jawaharlal Nehru University. He also worked as a visiting scholar in Institute für Mikrobiologie, Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Düsseldorf, Germany, in 2008. Dr. Hameed has received the Young Scientist award from the Science and Engineering Research Board, Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi. Dr. Hameed is actively engaged in research in infectious diseases particularly multidrug resistance (MDR) in pathogenic fungi.
