Target - The impact of our genomes on individuals

The research within TARGET will at the genome and gut microbiome levels identify subsets of obese children who carry a specific human genetic variation and/or gut microbiome profile. Furthermore, genome and gut microbiome dependent responses to prevention and therapy will be identified. Thus, the outlined research program is to be considered as an essential step to stem the tide of the global increase in childhood obesity and the related co-morbidities.
