Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics

A section of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).

Section Information

The completion of the human genome sequencing and the advances in high-throughout ‘omic’ technologies place Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics at the very core of the modern Nutrition science. These achievements are enabling novel hypothesis and nonhypothesis-driven approaches to study how an individual’s genome and other variable biological layers (epigenome, gut microbiome, health status, etc.) impact and modulate the relationship between nutrition and health and are themselves affected/programmed by nutritional conditions along life, and particularly at early life stages. Goals are to define the biomarkers of effect and exposure, biological targets, and mechanisms of action of dietary factors/patterns, both in health and disease states (particularly diet-related noncommunicable complex diseases), to translate this knowledge into personalized nutrition strategies for optimal health and disease prevention, and to advance in the understanding of the impact of diet on systems biology.

This section of Nutrients aims to publish contributions on all aspects of Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics. We encourage the submission of manuscripts that provide novel and mechanistic insights and papers that report significant advances in the fields.
