Exposure science is the research of our get in touch with, such as by swallowing, breathing, or touching, with ecological aspects and their effects on the human body. Research in this area aims to establish the types, levels, and combinations of exposures people experience and how those exposures influence human health and disease over a life time. One simple way of thinking of the environment is that everything that is not determined by your genes is determined by your environment. Omics describes the cumulative technologies used to explore the functions, connections, and activities of the numerous types of particles that compose the cells of a microorganism. Due to fast advances in -omics innovation in the last 20 years, the idea of the exposome represents a vast view of many environmental factors that act on our biology. While scientists know the framework of human genetics, collectively called the genome, they have yet to define the completeness of the human exposome.
