Summary The OMICs: Applications in Neuroscience summarizes the state of the art in high-throughput approaches (collectively known as 'OMICs') in neurology and neuroscience, and is of interest to both neurologists tracking the progress of these methods towards clinical applications, and neuroscientists curious about the most recent advances in this ever-changing field. The explosion of high-throughput assays has introduced large datasets, computational servers, and bioinformatics approaches to neuroscience, and medicine in general. The book includes a rich survey of the most relevant OMICs applications
