Ever since the rise of genomics, the suffix ‘-omics’ has been added to the names of many fields to denote studies undertaken on a large or genome-wide scale.
‘Omic’ technologies were primarily aimed at the universal detection of genes (genomics), mRNA (transcriptomics), proteins (proteomics) and metabolites (metabolomics) in a specific biological sample. Omic technologies have a broad range of applications. If we check the list of publication in omics journal, it is possible to appreciate an increment in the number of journals associated. Inclusive, Nature groups were going one step ahead, creating Nature Research’s Omics Gateway, discounted on 2011.
Associated with these discoveries, each discipline is developing the specifics methodologies to support the research. However, the main compound: The biological samples and its treatment are not always well treated. The preservation technology to keep biological samples is variable and not very reliable. Here, the proposal is to present different alternatives to preserve biological samples for omics studies.
