Aarhus University (AU)
The Department of Environmental Science at Aarhus University, Denmark, executes basic and problem-orientated research within organic and physical connections in the environment and within economic, political and social conditions in the interaction between environment and society. The Environmental Endocrine Disruptors Laboratory, headed by Dr. Martin Hansen, conducts lab and field experiments at the molecular level, to understand the environmental occurrence, fate and effects of endocrine-disrupting pollutants, such as natural substances, pesticides and medicine residue. Metabolomics studies (the study of the chemical fingerprints left behind after specific cellular processes) are a core discipline at the lab, and are achieved by using state-of-the-art mass spectrometry-based technologies.
Within HoloFood AU will conduct metabolomic data generation and analysis for the salmon component of the project and contribute with their expertise in the field towards the hologenomic solution proposed by HoloFood.
