About the Workshop

During this 2-hour hands-on and interactive workshop, we will guide you through the world of Open Science and, specifically, how to upload your research to an open repository (Zenodo).

We will cover:

  • the basics of Open and FAIR principles
  • how to upload your piece of work on Zenodo, step by step
  • how to publicize, advertise and raise awareness about your work.

Bring along a piece of work that you can make open and want to share on an open repository (dataset, preprint, publication, presentation…).

At the end of the workshop, you can earn a certificate of attendance by filling a short feedback survey.

This workshop is organized in the frame of the EU Funded project FNS-Cloud.

Structure and function of non-digestible carbohydrates in the gut microbiome

Together with proteins and fats, carbohydrates are one of the macronutrients in the human diet. Digestible carbohydrates, such as starch, starch-based products, sucrose, lactose, glucose and some sugar alcohols and unusual (and fairly rare) α-linked glucans, directly provide us with energy while other carbohydrates including high molecular weight polysaccharides, mainly from plant cell walls, provide us with dietary fibre. Carbohydrates which are efficiently digested in the small intestine are not available in appreciable quantities to act as substrates for gut bacteria. Some oligo- and polysaccharides, many of which are also dietary fibres, are resistant to digestion in the small intestines and enter the colon where they provide substrates for the complex bacterial ecosystem that resides there.

This session will focus on what we know and what we need to know about the structure-function relationship in dietary carbohydrates. Of particular focus will be the systematic effects of prebiotics, modelling prebiotic activity, as well as enabling technologies for future prebiotics.

About the Webinar

Diet is a major risk factor for cardio-metabolic health, but is challenging to study in part because metabolic response to diet is highly individualized. Characterizing the molecular pathways that mediate personalized responses to diet is critical to effectively tackle the rapid rise in obesity and its associated health consequences. Recently, we established an international multidisciplinary collaborative group of experts, the DIMENSION consortium, to test the hypothesis that dietary induced changes to gene function and its regulation can explain inter-individual variability in metabolic response to diet and its downstream effects on health.

The DIMENSION project tests this hypothesis by investigating dynamically the impacts of dietary intake on epigenetic regulation of gene function, and their effects on subsequent human cardio-metabolic health outcomes. DIMENSION focuses on the human gene regulatory and functional pathways that occur immediately following food intake in the postprandial state, as well as with habitual dietary intakes. In this webinar, experts with academic expertise will discuss recent research into how our diet impacts our genome and its regulation to promote cardio-metabolic health, and to inform the rapidly evolving area of personalized nutrition-based strategies.

About the Webinar

Have you ever considered having your microbiome analysed? If so, did questions about the applicability or reliability of the results to health or nutrition cross your mind? Do you believe, this is a promising area of research? Would you like to learn about its current status? This webinar will offer insights from experts who are working at the cutting-edge of microbiome-informed precision nutrition and healthcare. 

Disruptions in the ecological balance of the gut microbiota have been associated with many health problems, ranging from IBS, obesity, diabetes to autism spectrum disorder and Alzheimer's disease. But how do we understand, or even measure, these associations, if every single gut microbiome on this planet has a totally unique composition? How can we understand and manage variable responses to dietary, prebiotic, and probiotic interventions?

This webinar will provide an overview of some of the major computational and experimental tools that can be applied to these critical questions of microbiota-mediated personalized nutrition and healthcare. What can these tools tell us today, how will they (need to) evolve? What can we expect from sophisticated organ-on-a-chip models that integrate both host and microbial compartments? Can more sophisticated modelling tools help us to integrate the vast complexity of our inner ecology? Can we build low-cost diagnostic tools and predictive models that democratize access to personalized interventions?

Once we embrace the complexity of personalised interventions: what kinds of intervention modes do we target: e.g., diet, prebiotics, probiotics, or postbiotics? Which existing consumer-facing precision nutrition platforms are promising? What are the necessary steps forward, and who are the partners and stakeholders, in building a precision nutrition and healthcare future, capable of leveraging the gut microbiota?

  • Gabriele Gross - Head of Emerging Sciences, R&D Science Platforms Nutrition · Mead Johnson Nutrition / Reckitt (NL)
Speakers
  • Leveraging the Gut Microbiota to Predict Personalized Responses to Dietary, Prebiotic, and Probiotic Interventions, Sean Gibbons - Institute for Systems Biology (US)
  • Microbiome & data, Gwen Falony - KU Leuven (BE)
  • Clinical/nutritional perspective, Emily Leeming - King's College London (UK)
