I realize this is an unusual question for this forum, but I though this would nevertheless be the right place to ask. I am starting a sentence with "Integrative transcriptomics" and want to say reveal or reveals after that. The ...omics words can generally be used in singular or plural meaning, but I am not a native speaker, so I am not certain which is better in this case. I am leaning towards the plural form, i.e. "Integrative transcriptomics reveal ...", but this is purely gut feeling. Also, the sentence refers to multiple transcriptomic methods, so this adds to my plural "feel".
Any opinions? Can I freely choose, or is there something else to consider?
