A Generalized Open Source Extensile Framework for Omics Analysis

MathIOmica is based on the Wolfram Language.  This provides a framework for graphical, numerical and symbolic work for omics analyses. The code cross-platform, open source  and includes full integrated documentation.

Multi-Omics Integration

Omics analyses and integration requires extensive processing. MathIOmica provides a user-friendly framework for handling downstream analysis and visualization that is generalizable to multi-modal omics.

Scientific Community Resources

Designing MathIOmica required the creation of robust multi-omics datasets for time series analyses and network inference. Such sets are being made availabe to the scientific community on completion.


MathIOmica: a unique platform for omics  analysis and integration.  MathIOmica's current version: 1.1.0.

"Personalized medicine is expected to benefit from combining genomic information with regular monitoring of physiological states by multiple high- throughput methods. Here, we present an integrative personal omics profile (iPOP), an analysis that combines genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic, and autoantibody profiles from a single individual over a 14 month period. Our iPOP analysis revealed various medical risks, including type II diabetes. It also uncovered extensive, dynamic changes in diverse molecular components and biological pathways across healthy and diseased conditions. Extremely high-coverage genomic and transcriptomic data, which provide the basis of our iPOP, discovered extensive heteroallelic changes during healthy and diseased states and an unexpected RNA editing mechanism. This study demonstrates that longitudinal iPOP can be used to interpret healthy and disease states by connecting genomic information with additional dynamic omics activity."

Cell, Volume 148, Issue 6, 1293-1307, 16 March 2012

Curated mapped subsets of the pilot iPOP data are utilized in MathIOmica for examples and documentation. The original raw data for the pilot iPOP study have been made publically available as follows:
