Understanding Nutrigenomics Concepts & Technologies

One of the great challenges in nutrigenomics is to understand how each individual interacts with, and responds to their environment. Diet is the most important, but not the only environmental factor influencing expression of genetic information because of the constant exposure to nutrients in foods.

This emerging discipline requires a familarity with genomics, nutrition, molecular biology, epidemiology, physiology, bioinformatics, biocomputation, and ethics. The Center of Excellence in Nutritional Genomics develops educational material for educating the next generation of scientists in this exciting discipline.
