A workshop dedicated to the concept of Exposome and to the main analysis techniques currently in use through a practical exercise on the R software will take place on October 28th, as part of the AIE Autumn Conference.
The concept of Esposome, first introduced by Christopher Wild in 2005, indicates the totality of environmental (non-genetic) exposures to which an individual is exposed starting from its conception and throughout the course of life. However, studying the Exposome in relation to health outcomes represents a major methodological challenge for environmental epidemiology. The heterogeneity and the large quantity of exposures considerated simultaneously confront the researcher with complexity of big data and the use of adaptive and robust analysis techniques.
The workshop, conducted by Chiara Moccia and Antonio D'Errico (Epidemiology Unit, Medical Science Department, University of Turin) will propose to participants an introduction to the concept of Exposome and the main analysis techniques currently in use through a practical exercise on the R software using "rexposome" package.
