New framework to decipher biomolecular interaction
Attempts to improve animal and plant microbiome functions are largely unsuccessful since interactions between the host’s biological process and their microbiome remain only superficially understood. What is certain is that microbiome functions can be optimised for sustainable food production. The question is how. In this context, the EU-funded FindingPheno project will develop a holistic statistical framework to decipher biomolecular interactions between host and microbiome. Specifically, it will combine biological knowledge and state-of-the-art statistical methods: structural causal modelling, variable selection, dimensionality reduction and feature detection. The next step will be to apply the framework to case studies from actual food production systems. The aim is to demonstrate the utility of the framework and provide avenues for quick and easy application of this new approach.
