Special Issue "Gene-Diet Interactions"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
In the new era of precision nutrition, it is essential to provide scientific evidence of gene-diet interactions that can result in a practical application. For this reason, one of the priority research lines into nutrition, and one where more published articles are required, is precisely that of research into gene-diet interactions deriving from four different approaches. The first of these approaches concerns methodology. We must continue working on the improvement of the methodology and statistical analysis of gene-diet interaction studies, not only including single-gene analyses, but also multi-gene analyses in the form of genetic risk scores. The second approach is that of investigating new gene-diet interactions both in vitamin-deficiency phenotypes or deficiency of other nutrients as in complex phenotypes such as obesity, dyslipidemias, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, etc. The third approach involves integrating other omics in order to delve deeper into the mechanisms of gene-diet interactions and the fourth approach is undertaking systematic reviews or meta-analyses that analyze the heterogeneity of the reported gene-diet interaction in published studies.For all those reasons, this Special Issue would welcome any contributions of these types of work in the field of gene-diet interactions.
