Project: Establishment of an integrative nutrigenomics platform for End Stage Renal Disease patients
Nutrigenomics is fundamental in the understanding of the dietary intake influence on phenotype, particularly of the silver population. The project aims to establish an integrative nutrigenomics platform from silver population of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients from Crete (Greece). To achieve this, BioCos will integrate omics data and dietary habits from healthy and kidney-failure individuals in order to assess the molecular mechanisms interacting with bioactive compounds and nutrients and detect putative biomarkers.
