Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Gene-Diet Interactions in Chronic Diseases
There is increasing awareness among researchers and healthcare professionals that the one-size-fits-all, population-based approach to nutritional guidance is inefficient and sometimes ineffective. Many studies have now shown that variations in genes can explain why some individuals respond differently from others to the same foods, beverages, and supplements they consume. The application of various -omics technologies to studies linking nutrition with human health and performance has enhanced our understanding of the effects of specific nutrients, food bioactives and dietary patterns and helped to explain the basis for individual differences in response. Findings in this area have also helped us to understand individual nutritional requirements, identify the presence of food preferences and intolerances, and establish specific food bioactives and dietary patterns that improve health and performance. The behavioural, social, ethical and legal aspects of genetic testing for personalised nutrition are also of great interest to the field.
This Special Issue of Nutrients aims to highlight the latest advances and showcase the current state of the science and latest findings in the field of nutritional genomics (nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics). Submissions may include studies that explore gene–diet interactions using various experimental models, clinical trials and population-based approaches. Submissions of manuscripts are welcome that describe original research or reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses). The scientific advances in the field of nutritional genomics will continue to pave the path towards personalised and precision nutrition for optimal health and performance.Prof. Dr. Lynnette Ferguson

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.
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 2000 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.
