Impact of COVID-19

In March 2019, the world was hit by a storm with the Sars-CoV-2 virus, which led to the entire world being shut down and everybody getting tested for the virus. As the amount of testing increased, it became important to increase the pace of testing as well. To do this, next-generation sequencers were set up at many clinical and diagnostic centers to sequence the genomes and transcriptomes of the virus as well as the infected patients to understand and procure treatments.

Recently, NGS technologies are increasingly being used for clinical diagnosis. The overall popularity of NGS sequencing for genome and transcriptome sequencing was increased during COVID-19 because of its use in the detection of coronavirus by the methods such as SARS-CoV-2 surveillance, detection, and the detection of new viruses.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact on medical research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) both extended grant application deadlines, laid back reporting requirements, and offered flexibility on how the grant money is spent. The national government supported research work and offered medical researchers the flexibility to implement their skill set and knowledge in studying SARS-CoV-2. Due to this, the use of NGS during COVID-19 ended up increasing due to its use in COVID-19 testing.

In fact, even now, after the pandemic has subsided the effect lingers and the use of sequencing instruments is not expected to go down but to keep increasing over the next decade enhancing the fields for epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics as well.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Functional genomics is the study of genes and their interactions in different biological processes. The field aims to narrow down the candidate genes or regions from the entire genome that can be analyzed in detail to understand the working of various biological processes. The workings of individual components of a biological system including various interactions at the DNA, RNA, and proteins level is analyzed at the genotypic as well as the phenotypic level. The field is focused on the dynamics of gene products which can be at a specific developmental stage during a disease. Functional genomics is used to link phenotypes to genotypes using the study findings.

According to BIS Research functional genomics products are used in DNA level (epigenomics), RNA level (transcriptomics), protein level (proteomics) or metabolite level (metabolomics). This includes all the products used in these fields’ workflow before bioinformatics and data analysis. Together all these fields describe the transcripts, metabolites, and proteins of any biological system. The integration of all these pieces makes up the entire biological system that is being studied which makes up the field of functional genomics.
