Revolutionizing Biology: How Imageomics Transforms Our View of Genetics

AI Bioinspired Butterfly Concept

Imageomics utilizes machine learning to analyze biological traits from images, offering new insights into the link between phenotypes and genotypes. With its emphasis on conservation and ecological preservation, the field stands at the forefront of major scientific discoveries. Credit:

Research on mimicry in butterflies provides one example.

Imageomics, a new field of science, has made stunning progress in the past year and is on the verge of major discoveries about life on Earth, according to one of the founders of the discipline.

Tanya Berger-Wolf, faculty director of the Translational Data Analytics Institute at The Ohio State University, outlined the state of imageomics in a presentation on February 17, 2024, at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

“Imageomics is coming of age and is ready for its first major discoveries,” Berger-Wolf said in an interview before the meeting.
