The GLOMICAVE project was represented during the 18th Annual International Conference of the Metabolomics Society celebrated from 19th – 23rd of June in Valencia (Spain).
Christian Espinoza, project partner from AkiNaO, participated in the conference presenting the poster “Can the metabolic response of peach plants to virus diseases lead to the development of an early diagnostic tool?”.
The poster explains the research done within the AntiShark project in order to prevent rapid spread of plum pox virus (PPV), which causes the incurable sharka disease, and solve the current limitations affecting the development of an innovative approach based on plant metabolic responses to PPV-infection.
Furthermore, the poster also mentioned the GLOMICAVE project, which is developing an innovative open digital platform for multi-omics data analysis to reveal new genotype-phenotype relationships and provide an accurate phenotypic prediction.
The Metabolomics Society Conference presented the latest advances in the field of omics sciences covering the major scientific topics of technological advances, bioinformatics, metabolomics applications in health and disease, exposomics and a special focus on metabolomics in agriculture, plants, food and nutritional sciences. The scientific program of the conference included plenary and keynote talks, parallel scientific sessions, poster sessions and other networking events.
