Changing lives and solving problems of global significance

The work of the ANPC supports almost every area of bioscience. It reaches across traditional research silos and fosters a new, more collaborative approach to science that is critical to solving some of the world’s most challenging problems.

As the international centre of expertise in metabolic phenotyping, the ANPC provides an important new platform for research across the full spectrum of health, food and the environment.

A guide to phenomes and phenomics

A person’s phenome is a dynamic fingerprint of their unique biology resulting from the complex interactions between environmental and genetic factors.

Phenomics is the study of how a person’s lifestyle and environment interacts with their genes to influence their health and risk of disease.

Metabolic phenotyping is the analysis of biological tissue and fluid to uncover the specific interactions of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors at the molecular level.
