Project Description

Reformulation of the genotyping technique using xMAP technology, which is capable of analysing multiple Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) variants to be used in generating dietary plans tailored to the needs of each individual, and customised face creams based on their genes.

The genotype for dietary plans and face creams will be accompanied first by an analysis of urine metabolomics, using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) technology, in order to monitor the customised dietary plan, and a facial microbiota analysis using the mass sequencing technique, to evaluate the efficacy of the cosmetic product.

The YB-METAGENCODE project aims to provide a response to the demand for immediacy in genotyping processes for application in customised cosmetic and nutritional products, so as to provide consumers and professionals with mechanisms that will indicate the effectiveness of the product.

The project has in place a consortium comprising Genocosmetics Lab, the lead company in the project specialising in customised cosmetics and nutrition, and Eurecat, which is collaborating in the venture through the Omic Sciences Technology Unit.
