It is well known that the same food intake can produce varying outcomes in different people. For example, one person may increase his or her body weight differently to another: some people develop hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes; others are affected by food allergies, some types of cancer, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Such inter-individual variability in response to diet is, to a large extent, determined by genetic factors. Therefore, nutrition represents a key environmental factor that may have the potential to modify genetic predispositions, so as to promote the progression and pathogenesis of diet-related diseases, by modulating the expression of genes involved in the metabolic pathways associated with these disorders. Currently, advances in nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics are revolutionizing our knowledge concerning the complex interactions between genes and nutrients, which are relevant to health and disease; understanding these interactions requires a basic understanding of nutrition, genetics, and a range of “omic” technologies, so as to investigate these issues.
We invite investigators to submit both original research and review articles that explore all the aspects of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Non-coding RNAs
- Metabolic diseases
- Bioactive phytochemicals

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
