Activity: Attending an eventParticipating in or organising a conference


Food biotechnology and nutrigenomics are rapidly growing research fields contributing to a better understanding of the interaction between nutrition, metabolism and gene expression. Recent investigations of the human gut have
provided insight into the complicated interactions between nutrition and the gut microbiota. Advanced methods in biotechnology enables investigations of nutritional effects and interactions at the metabolomic and transriptomic level in relation to health and the development of life style diseases. This way nutrigenomics provides the potential for development of individual diets. Furthermore food biotechnology provides the possibilities and sustainable
methods to produce healthy food and food ingredients with specific properties. Together food biotechnology and nutrigenomics are research areas providing a deeper understanding of health and nutrition, and significantly contributing to the development of healthy food and way of living.

The present conference focuses on the latest achievements in the research fields of
Nutritional metabolomics
Nutritional systems biology and biomarkers
Prebiotics and functional food ingredients
Cell factories for production of food ingredients
Food allergens
Probiotics and human gut microbiota
Human gut microbiota and life style diseases

The conference will include a poster session covering a broad range of topics on biotechnology as well as a commercial exhibition of equipment, consumables and services to Danish biotechnology. The conference is organised in collaboration with Danish Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as well as BioPeople.

Danish Biotechnological Society (DBS) is a scientific society established in 2006 in collaboration between Danish Biotechnology Forum and The Danish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. DBS is organised as part of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA. The purpose of DBS is to facilitate networking within the field of biotechnology in Denmark, creating links between universities, research institutions, hospitals and companies. DBS represents professionals working with biotechnology and seeks to promote and communicate important issues on biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology to the public. DBS organises scientific conferences and meetings on biotechnology.
