As part of efforts to support learned societies in developing countries, the Nutrition Society is delighted to announce that it will be holding a training workshop at The Federation of African Nutrition Societies (FANUS) Conference 25-29 May in Arusha, Tanzania. Click here to find out more about the FANUS Conference.
Background of workshop:
A critical aspect of the scientific process is the reporting of new results in scientific journals in order to disseminate that information to the larger community of scientists. Communication of research results contributes to the pool of knowledge within a given discipline. Scientific journals only accept papers for publication only after peer review by a small group of scientists who work in the same field and who recommend the paper be published (usually with some revision).
Read more about the programme and objectives of the workshop.
Attendance to the workshop is FREE to FANUS conference delegates. Registeration is now open for this workshop.
Location: Nutrition Society offices, London
This one day workshop is designed to make use of freely available open-source specific bioinformatics databases containing data on ontology of chemical entities. The first part of the day introduces delegates to the database held by the European Bioinformatics Institute. The second part provides an overview on the use of publicly available resources and enzyme portals. Tutorials will be followed by exercises to explore functionality, extract data and search for experiments on tissue, cell or nutrient of interest.

Obesity-related disease underlies hundreds of thousands of premature deaths worldwide. Obesity originates from an imbalance in the intake and expenditure of energy, and specifically from the passive over consumption of energy from food and a sedentary lifestyle, which leads to an increased storage of body fat and weight gain. There is an emerging body of evidence to suggest that partial sleep deprivation may contribute to the development of obesity by influencing both the amount and type of food that we eat, through effects on appetite and food choice. There is also compelling evidence to suggest that obesity may develop from a mismatch between the timing of food intake throughout the day, and circadian rhythms associated with the regulation of energy balance.
