Special Issue "Gene-Nutrient Interactions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2015).
Interests: genetic, gene-environment interaction, nutrition, epidemiology, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease
This special issue is intended to present feature and scholarly papers that address some of the diverse array of topics related to Gene-Nutrient Interaction. These topics include but are not limited to epidemiological (population-based studies, clinical trials) and experimental (animal, cellular, and functional) studies with a focus on interactions between genetic variants and dietary factors such as nutrients, foods, and dietary patterns in relation to human health such as various chronic diseases, metabolic changes, and aging. Research in other omics such as transcriptomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, and proteomics, as well as investigations on microbiome that are closely related to gene-nutrient interactions would be also included. We invite scientists and researchers from all these relevant fields to submit papers for this important special issue. Original research studies and reviews on all the topics related to gene-nutrient interaction are invited.
