Big Data in Personalized Metabolomics

The human metabolism is a complex interplay of metabolites produced by the body and taken up from the environment. Our body generates energy from food and extracts essential nutrients, like vitamins or amino acids. Food, drinks, nutritional supplements, exercise and other lifestyle parameters have a large impact on our body. Today, many of these parameters can be tracked using mobile applications. We have build a platform that aims at better understanding metabolism based on a drop of blood taking at home – Kenkodo. Kenkodo  allows the analysis of thousands of metabolites. By this, a huge amount of data is generated and brought into relationship with user lifestyle data monitored using mobile sensors and user feedback. Which allows to identify deficencies, undiagnosed diseases and lifestyle influences. Using metabolomics and meta-data novel biomarkers and predictors are developed by longitudinal data.
