The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world in an unprecedented way since 2019. However, novel and innovative applications of various omics, computational, and smart technologies have helped manage the pandemic of the 21st century in a very effective manner. Omics approaches and technologies in COVID-19 presents up-to-date knowledge on omics, genetic engineering, mathematical and computational approaches, and advanced technologies in the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, and management of COVID-19.
This book contains 26 chapters written by academic and industry experts from more than 15 countries. Split into three sections (Omics; Artificial Intelligence and Bioinformatics; and Smart and Emerging Technologies), it brings an overview of novel technologies under omics such as, genomic, metagenomic, pangenomic, metabolomics and proteomics in COVID-19. In addition, it discusses hostpathogen interactions and interactomics, management options, application of genetic engineering, mathematical modeling and simulations, systems biology, and bioinformatics approaches in COVID-19 drug discovery and vaccine development.
This is a valuable resource for students, biotechnologists, bioinformaticians, virologists, clinicians, and pharmaceutical, biomedical, and healthcare industry people who want to understand the promising omics and other technologies used in combating COVID-19 from various aspects.
