The article presents a reprint of the article "Biomakers in population-based studies," by Dana Glei and Maxine Weinstein that appeared at www.cmaj.ca. It states that biomakers analyses in studies based on population may provide idea into the foundation of population health that formerly could not derive merely from clinical data. Furthermore, reproduction is essential in understanding whether outcomes are generalized or restricted to a specific population with a specific history.

    The appreciation of endometrial receptivity is a crucial step in assisted reproductive technology as implantation failures are thought to result, in large part, from abnormal endometrial receptivity. Using emerging omics technologies, investigators have begun to define both molecular signatures...
