Foodomics Research Lab
We are food chemists, specializing in application of analytical chemistry in food science using omics approach (metabolomics, flavoromics) to enhance food flavor and product quality.
Metabolomics in food quality
LC-MS-based metabolomics to identify biomarkers and related metabolisms in order to enhance quality and safety of food and food products (nut quality, vegetable safety, crop disease, etc.)
Flavoromics in food flavor
Projects focus on discovery of flavor synthesis in fruits using GC-MS (aroma volatiles) and LC-MS (taste compounds and flavor precursors) to support finding molecular markers in breeding programs with improvement of product flavor
Multi-omics in food science
Metabolomics combined with other omics approaches to elucidate in-depth biochemical mechanisms and processes of food and food products (e.g. metabolomics with metagenomics in dairy product flavor and quality)
