Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020).
Interests: nutrition and health; physical activity; epigenome; microRNAs; DNA methylation; disease biomarkers, cardiovascular disease; healthy aging
The discovery of gene–diet interactions and how they modulate risk of disease has opened a new horizon in the field of nutrition research and paved the way for personalized nutritional approaches, aiming to increase the effectiveness of nutritional advice for improving an individual’s health state, followed by the development of new -omics technologies and its recent affordability, which allowed the exponential increase of the knowledge in the field—knowledge that has been commercially exploited with the emergence of companies offering personalized nutritional advices based on nutrigenetic tests.
However, with the advance of knowledge in the field, the complexity of gene–nutrient interactions has become evident. Moreover, the need to take into consideration not only interactions between genes and nutrients but also between nutrients and the epigenome or the microbiome is being considered. In this regard, the term precision nutrition has emerged that includes the complexity of the interaction between nutrients and biological processes.
In this Special Issue, we would like to bring readers closer to the state-of-the-art in the field by gathering papers covering different aspects of gene–nutrient, epigenome–nutrient, and microbiome–nutrient interactions related to human health. Original research articles and reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses) are welcome.

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. 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 2400 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.
