Big Data comes to Europe’s small dairy farms
Brie, mozzarella, feta, cheddar and so many more – European dairy farms produce some of the best and most well-known cheeses in the world, many protected by law as geographical indications or traditional specialties. The European dairy industry plays an important role in European culture and its economy, and its long and successful history is often rooted in traditions passed down over generations. Experience and intuition will soon have a third pillar of support with multiscale modelling tools under development in the context of the EU-funded E-MUSE project. Scientists are harnessing sophisticated biological, statistical and machine learning tools to enable prediction of macro-scale product properties from molecular-scale information related to the complex microbial ecosystems integral to the dairy industry.
