Xavier Domingo-Almenara, researcher at the Omics Sciences Unit of Eurecat and project’s scientific co-coordinator, participated as a keynote speaker in the Benelux Metabolomics Days held in Utrecht, the Netherlands, from 16th – 17th of November.
During his presentation, titled “Annotating untargeted metabolomics data: have we overcome the featuromics era?”, Xavier Domingo-Almenara introduced some of the new methods developed by EURECAT to annotate (identify) small molecules, known as metabolites, which are being developed as part of the GLOMICAVE project. He also introduced GLOMICAVE as a key EU-funded project developing an innovative digital platform to process large-scale omics datasets with the objective to enhance the understanding of biological systems as a whole.
The GLOMICAVE project is addressing the need to build systems allowing the use of primary data analytical processes and support large-scale omic experiments, thus maximising the utility of omic data at a massive level.
The Benelux Metabolomics Days was organised by The Netherlands Metabolomics Centre in collaboration with the Exposome-NL project offering a great platform to present the latest metabolomics research and developments and promote the networking and knowledge exchange among the sectors.
