Abstract

As omics-driven technologies developed rapidly, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and other omics-based data have been accumulated in unprecedented speed. Omics-driven big data in biology have changed our way of research. "Big science" has promoted our understanding of biology in a holistic overview that is impossibly achieved by traditional hypothesis-driven research. In this chapter, we gave an overview of omics-driven research on Y. pestis, provided a way of thinking on Yersinia pestis research in the age of big data, and made some suggestions to integrate omics-based data for systems understanding of Y. pestis.
