Exposome data analysis toolbox

Lead: ISGlobal

This WP aims to develop a set of advanced statistical and bioinformatics analysis strategies, tools, codes and tutorials for the analysis of exposome data. This includes:

  • The analysis of longitudinal exposome and health associations, including strategies aimed at risk prediction such as machine-learning (black box) techniques, and those aimed at estimating interpretable causal parameters for relevant exposures
  • The analysis of combined exposures effects
  • The integration of exposome and cross-omics data
  • Strategies for incorporating a-priori knowledge on causal structures and mediators to improve causal inference
  • The development of DataSHIELD R packages to perform federated non-disclosive analyses of the exposome
  • The development of open access tools, tutorials, courses and e-learning material
