chemometrics, food analysis, statistical techniques, software
Concerning the fact that even the simplest food is a complex matrix, the way to investigate its chemistry cannot be other than multivariate. Therefore, chemometrics is a necessary and powerful tool in the field of food analysis and control. Development of efficient and reliable analytical method requires chemometric approach at several levels starting with application of experimental design and optimization techniques for the separation step, followed by data acquisition, and signal manipulation, and finally solving classification and modelling problem, clustering and correlation. Several problems in food analysis which could be solved by chemometrics are traceability (the possibility of verifying the animal/botanical, geographical and/or productive origin of a foodstuff), connection of consumer preferences and sensory attributes with molecular profiling of food, process control and monitoring, etc. This workshop aims to point out to the main chemometrics techniques and their application to different aspects of food science in order to fulfil the knowledge of both, food chemists wanting to learn how these techniques can help in many aspects of their work and chemometricians having to deal with food-related problems. Numerous classiﬁcation and regression methods such as principal component analysis, hierarchical cluster analysis, linear discriminant analysis, partial least square discriminant analysis, k-nearest neighbours, artiﬁcial neural networks, partial least square regression, etc, will be discussed through defining a methodology and practical application of different statistical software such as Statistica, SPSS, NCSS, Matlab, etc.

PROF. DR JELENA TRIFKOVIĆ
This session will cover both theoretical and practical basis of bioinformatics approaches in nutrition research through nutrigenomics, metagenomics and plant genomics aspects.
Metagenomics approaches have wide-range application in personalized nutrition, functional food development and food safety. Plant genomics researches related to nutrition are mostly directed to optimizing utilization of available plant food, improving plant quality and creating novel plant-based food. Bioinformatics tools are widely used in the nutrition science such as in the detection of toxins, pathogens and food allergens, relation between diet and intestinal microbiota and improvement in plant breeding, food safety and security and designing novel food.
Together we will learn about NGS technology advantages, big data formats in biology and useful databases for nutrigenomics, metagenomics and plant genomics studies.
