O mém projektu

The main goal of my research project is to create a bioinformatic tool which would support diagnosis and research of the human large intestine microbiome by providing integrated analyses of metagenomic and metabolomic data. The tool will be used in the COLOBIOM colorectal cancer resarch project and Central European Longitudinal Study of Pregnancy and Childhood - The Next Generation, which are currently taking place at the Research Center for Toxic Compounds in the Environment at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech republic. While the tool will be shaped by the needs and results of these studies, its primary purpose is to serve the general scientific community, and at later stages of development, it should also find its use in medical diagnostic applications.
