Different areas of production, such as food, agriculture and technology, demand for nanotechnology-based products. This fact alerts the community about the possible effects that nanoparticle products (NPs) can have on the environment, and consequently on living organisms. NPs may be present in biological systems and linked to molecules that perform different functions in organisms and cells. Due to their high surface-to-volume ratio, NPs are highly reactive and catalytic, and can pass through cell membranes. However, their interactions with these systems are not yet well known. Nevertheless, some studies have warned about the possible effects of NPs when in contact with some living organisms. In Brazil, there is no law that determines the permissible concentration of these in foods, as well as the disposal of NPs in the environment. Thus, through metallomic platforms and other omonic platforms, this project focuses on the evaluation of the biological effects of soybean plants grown in the presence of silver, copper and silica nanoparticles, through macro characteristics of the plants, such as growth, mass moist. , germination rate, among others, as well as possible changes in terms of (metal) proteins, lipids, enzymes and metals under or without influence of NPs.
