1. Overall project description
Background & Aims:
Diet and physical activity are lifestyle factors that may affect differently to subjects depending on their genetics and environment. Metabolomics and Proteomics are advanced high-performance techniques that allow understanding what is actually happening inside a human being by the interplay of diet, activity, environment, and genetic predisposition.
Biomarkid will characterize biomarkers of comprehensive dietary patterns, the balance between physical activity and sedentary behaviour, sleep habits, and the interplay between them in children and youth.
One of the main challenges of using these high-performance techniques is to make them available to the practitioners for clinical assessment of patients.
Biomarkid will deliver a web-based tool for interpretation of biomarkers of diet and physical activity to end-users from research, clinical and public health settings (without any computational expertise required), for future applications on health.
To achieve these ambitious objectives, the consortium is formed by a multidisciplinary team holding clinicians, laboratory experts in metabolomics and proteomics, and analysts with expertise in artificial intelligence.
Expected results and impact:
With the biomarkers characterization and web-based tool produced by Biomarkid, health practitioners will be able to translate complex biomarkers data sets into adherence to certain dietary patterns, physical or sedentary activity, and sleep, related to health.
Biomarkid will bring complex biomarkers identification technology closer to the end-user.
