SEMINAR: Summary of my MAD thesis: Investigating Microbiota And Diet in Infants and Young Children

Claudia will explore the following in her talk:

  1. In what ways is diet during the complementary feeding period associated with children’s subsequent gut microbiota composition at 12 months?
  2. How well does the EAT5 Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) measure children’s intakes of dietary components that have been reported to influence the composition of the gut microbiota?
  3. In what ways is diet associated with the composition of the gut microbiota at age 5 y?

Associated with the rapid advancement of technology, several bioinformatic data handling processes have been developed to attempt to identify links between diet and the gut microbiota.

While many common statistical methods have been used, the most appropriate method to determine associations between dietary components and microbiota composition is open to debate.
