Abstract

Omic techniques have become key tools in the development of systems biology. As the holistic approaches underlying the practice of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and new tendencies in Western medicine towards personalised medicine require in-depth knowledge of mechanisms of action and active compounds, the use of omic techniques is crucial for understanding and interpretation of TCM development, especially in view of its expansion in Western countries. In this short review, omic applications in TCM research are reviewed which has allowed some speculation regarding future perspectives for these approaches in TCM modernisation and standardisation. Guidelines for good practice for the application of omics in TCM research are also proposed. © 2012 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
