Special Issue "Nutrigenomics"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2018)
Following the completion of the mapping of the Human Genome, a cumulative number of studies have been performed to identify genetic factors that may explain the inter-individual variability observed in the metabolic response to specific diets. Accordingly, numerous genetic variations have already been identified as relevant determinants of the heterogeneous response to nutrient intake. Although most findings on this topic still have not delivered their fully-expected potential in terms of translation and application to clinical practice, research is still ongoing and nutritional recommendations, solely based on genetic background, have emerged.
Gene–diet interactions have also been frequently investigated in association studies seeking risk factors predisposing to chronic societal diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular diseases. Further research is focused on revealing the underlying molecular mechanisms behind these associations allowing to interpret their biological significance and potential clinical applications.
The current Special Issue aims to welcome original works and literature reviews in the field of nutrigenomics/nutrigenetics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
