The genetic material of a cell or the genome is subject to modifications that can alter gene expression. These modifications cannot be attributed to the modifications of the primary DNA sequence and are inherited by both mitosis and meiosis. Modifications like these are termed as epigenetic modifications and their study as epigenetics. DNA methylation, histone modification and specially positioned nucleosomes are three of the best characterized epigenetic processes.
The study of epigenome, i.e. the entire set of epigenetic modifications in the genetic material of a cell, is called epigenomics. Epigenetic modifications are reversible modifications in a cell’s DNA or histones which without altering the DNA sequence can effect gene expression. These modifications occur as natural processes during tissue differentiation and development and are subject to change due to environmental exposure or disease. Until recently, doctors and scientist have thought that diseases are caused mainly by infectious agents like bacteria or virus or other pathogens, by environmental factors or by changes in the DNA sequence. But recently researchers have demonstrated that human health is also affected by changes in the epigenome which can cause or result from diseases. Hence epigenomics has become a vital topic of interest to better understand human body and hence improve human health.
Biomarker is a measurable indicator of the severity or presence of some disease state.
Biomarkers continue to become increasingly relevant in research and healthcare applications, as evidenced by the global market for products involved in their identification, validation, and use estimated at $8.3 billion in 2007 and projected to increase to $15 billion in 2010. The accelerating pace of activity in this area is further underlined by a cursory review of the publication space, where the number of relevant scientific articles generated annually has doubled from 20,000 to 40,000 over the past decade. AACR, in partnership with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Cancer Institute (NCI), formed the AACR-FDA-NCI Cancer Biomarkers Collaborative (CBC) to accelerate the translation of cancer therapeutics into the clinic by shaping the processes for the effective development of validated biomarkers and their use in clinical trials for maximum patient benefit.
Pharmacogenomics is the study of the role of genetics in drug response. Computational advances in pharmacogenomics has proven to be a blessing in research. A large amount of research in the biomedical sciences regarding Pharmacogenomics as of late stems from combinatorial chemistry, genomic mining, omic technologies and high throughput screening.

McGill University scooped the joint-biggest award for a project, C$400,000, to advance its single-cell genomics infrastructure.
First, the vast numbers of species and the much larger size of some genomes make the entire sequencing of all genomes a non-optimal approach for understanding genome structure. Second, within a given species most individuals are genetically distinct in a number of ways. What does it actually mean, for example, to "sequence a human genome"? The genomes of two individuals who are genetically distinct differ with respect to DNA sequence by definition. These two problems, and the potential for other novel applications, have given rise to new approaches which, taken together, constitute the field of comparative genomics.
