What is the effect of physical activity on our body ?

A research program will attempt to discover what physical exercise alters in our body at the molecular level. To do this, physiology, genomics, epigenetics, proteomics, metabolomics and computer programming will be applied to humans and animal models.

Thousands of genes and metabolites will be analyses for tens of thousands of blood muscle and fat samples. The information obtained will be published. These will improve the recommendations on physical exercise and perhaps replicate the benefits of exercise in people who cannot do any.
