Special Issue ‘One Health meets Omics: The way forward to investigate zoonosis’
The concept of One Health, whilst not new, has re‐emerged strongly in the last 2 years due to the emergence of the SARS‐CoV‐2 virus. The pandemic has highlighted the need to consider animal health and the health of natural environments, both of which have proven to have a bidirectional relationship with human health. Several papers in this Special Issue address One Health approaches, particularly in the area of infectious diseases and/or zoonoses, but also antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the study of the animal microbiome. Some of these studies include ‘omics’ sciences in their methodology. Genomics and metagenomics seem to remain, at least to date, the most widely used omics sciences in One Health studies. This Special Issue describes examples where One Health approaches have been successfully applied, mostly using one of the omics sciences, in order to answer various research questions, particularly in the study of infectious diseases, including zoonoses, but also AMR, amongst other topics.
