Micronutrient Genomics Project
-

A Workshop,

September 26, 2010, Guarujá, SP, Brazil


The Micronutrient Genomics Project (MGP) was set up in 2009 and is a
community
-
based collaborative venture to facilitate and enhance
genomic studies in relation to micronutrients. Taking advantage of on
-
going developments in genomic technologies and bioinf
ormatics MGP aims
to underpin a new generation of micronutrient research. To achieve
this MGP is creating a public portal and open source bioinformatics
toolbox for all "omics" information and evaluation of micronutrient
and health studies. MGP has been es
tablished to facilitate the
incorporation of these developments in micronutrient research and to
support international collaboration in building this database.


Our next meeting with be associated with the INCON conference in
Guraja, Brazil and we welcom
e scientists interested in micronutrients
to attend our workshop.
