On the other hand, the variables of biological systems are referred to as the chronome when they are analyzed using the techniques of chronomics. Physiological chronomes and their unique features are calculated within a specific range that is much shorter than the range of the observations of the system as a whole.
Chronomics, the mapping of chronomes or time structures, aims to provide maps.
Another area of "omics" science in which chronomics is particularly important is sportomics [29].
Chronomics becomes an area for facilitating the integration of all these variables, and thus organizes the temporal chronomes for better interpretation and understanding.
The observation and recording of endogenous and exogenous biological rhythmicity is the focus of chronomics in collaboration with bioinformatics.
