e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Genetic and environmental factors influencing lung growth and lung function


Lung growth and lung function in early life are influenced by both purely genetic mechanisms and interactions between genes and environmental factors. Genes directly influencing lung growth are not well understood, whereas genes that may influence lung function and interact with environmental agents have been more extensively studied. A large number of environmental toxic agents have been implicated as having the potential to adversely affect normal lung development. As lung development occurs over such a long time, there are many windows of opportunity for a variety of environmental agents to exert their potential effect. There is strong evidence that in utero exposure to environmental agents, specifically tobacco smoke, is associated with adverse respiratory outcome and this appears to be influenced by genetic makeup. Multiple atmospheric pollutants have been associated with decreased lung function, increased hospitalisation with asthma and triggering of asthma exacerbations in children. Exposure to farm animals, pets and infections have also been demonstrated to influence respiratory outcome. In spite of the current knowledge base on the subject, a comprehensive understanding of the genetic and environmental factors influencing lung growth and lung function in early life is lacking.
