SMONAGENES : Smart Molecule of Natural Genetics Resource

Research Themes :

  • Nutrigenomic study of natural genetics resources of local plant or animal dairy product in Indonesia for disease therapy as healthy food
  • Molecular biomechanics of gene cascade of metabolic and degenerative diseases
  • Genes mapping, DNA barcoding, and Forensic Analysis of Natural Resources

Lecturers and researchers in this group

  • Prof. Fatchiyah, PhD.
  • Prof. Dr.rar.nat Wolfgang Nellen
  • Bambang Setiawan, SKed, MBiomed
  • Dr. dr. Nurdiana, M.Kes
  • Prof. Dr. Ir. Gatot Ciptadi, DESS

Description & Strategy

  • Developing and exploring animal-based food as UB’s superior product and natural nutraceutical food based on goat milk or local plants
  • Studying and analyzing the nutrigenomic mechanism of bioactive peptides found in goat milk or local plants as antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-allergenic
  • Developing prototypes of bioactive goat milk peptides or local plants as immunomodulators for disease therapy
  • The information obtained in this study is expected to be used as a basis for the development of individual genetically based nutraceutical food products and contribute to the study of human nutrition at various levels, from children to the elderly.
  • and can donate to the government as a basis for increasing regional potential in East Java and nationally, as healthy food or biomedicine ingredients so that it can improve the community’s economy
