Genes and Nutrition
Genes & Nutrition (ISSN 1555-8932) is an international, interdisciplinary broad based peer reviewed scientific journal for critical evaluation of research on the relationship between genomics, genetics & nutrition with the goal of improving human health. The aim of this Journal is to provide a recipient for scientific contributions addressing the emerging fields of Nutrigenomics, Nutrigenetics and other molecular aspects of Nutrition in the genomic era. The Journal will host human studies as well as research work on model systems, addressing issues related to human health and disease. To this end, the Journal will publish original research articles, review articles, brief communications and commentaries. In addition, the Journal could publish monothematic issues devoted to current topics, emerging issues or proceedings of symposia of special relevance for the Journal scopes.
G&N will focus on:
- Molecular and cellular studies of genes and proteins relevant to nutrient metabolism
- Transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics as related to nutrition
- Genotypic analysis of population groups and nutritional supplementation
- Study of physical and genetic linkage maps to uncover genes that may interact with diet to influence disease.
- Clinical nutrition in genetically characterized human sub-groups
- Study of individual genetic differences in response to dietary components.
- Gene-diet interaction and chronic disease.
- Interactions of diet and nutrition with genetic susceptibility in cancer
- Metabolic pathways affecting diet-related health risks
- Interaction between genes and nutrients or food components
- Metabolic effects of functional molecules in novel foods
- Development of safe and effective diet therapies for individuals or subgroups of the population on the basis of nutrigenomic data.
- Development of models of nutritional disease based on understanding the genome.
