The characterisation of the exposome and of its health consequences defines a complex research framework, which requires the development of novel analytical strategies combining statistical, data science, and bioinformatic approaches. The cross-cutting theme on statistical developments will develop and implement new statistical tools that will be used in Exposome-NL. These tools will be made available via Bioconductor both internally and externally to Exposome-NL, and yearly training workshops will be organized to disseminate knowledge throughout Exposome-NL. During the course of Exposome-NL new data challenges will arise and the project will adapt its research in later years based on identified unified data-problems within Exposome-NL.
Exposome-NL is a Dutch consortium of over fifty scientists from different disciplines, universities and medical centres. Together the scientists will systematically sequence the environmental factors influencing our health.Read More
