NuGOweek pre-course: Advances in the use of new technologies in molecular nutrition studies, 26-28 August 2017, Varna, BG

The objective of the course is to communicate the opportunities of technologies such as metabolomics, dried blood spots, deep phenotyping, mobile analysis technologies, and handling of big data (bioinformatics). The presentations will be based on both on good and bad experiences, how you collect, analyze and interpret large amounts of omics-data in nutrition studies.
