WP 6: Data management and systems biology

The massive amount of data that will be produced within NU-AGE project need to be stored in appropriate database in order to be fully exploitable. Furthermore an integrated statistical analysis and a systems biology approach will allow us to identify the molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for the effects of the whole diet intervention.

  • Store and analyse all the data generated in the NU-AGE intervention study
  • Identify risk factors of nutrition in the elderly associated with inflammageing based on integrated analysis of the NU-AGE database
  • Identify the pathways and networks responsive to the NU-AGE nutritional whole diet intervention by using an integrated analysis
  • Build an integrated systems biology based model accounting for all interactions between nutrition and biological processes involved in healthy ageing and prevention of functional decline in elderly, with focus on inflammation
