Partners from the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE), and the University of Bordeaux (UBx) presented the GLOMICAVE project during the 15th edition of the Scientific Days organised by the French-speaking Network of Metabolomics and Fluxomics (RFMF) from May 24th-26th in Perpignan (France).
During the event, partners showcased the poster entitled “Capturing growth, physiology and quality traits of ten fruit species using machine learning-based predictive metabolomics” which presents some of the work and results achieved as part of the fruit growth and quality use case developed within the project.
The poster also includes some information detailing how a better understanding of the developmental basis of fruit growth, physiology and quality traits would allow the identification of molecular targets for their improvement. Additionally, it showcases the collection of metabolic profiles for an allometric series of ten fruit species at nine different developmental stages carried out during the project and highlights the challenges of missing values in metabolome data.
The 15th edition of RFMF Scientific Days included a great deal of scientific conferences, an exhibition of posters focused on metabolomics and fluxomics and different networking sessions to exchange ideas and promote collaborations among all the attendees.
