Nutrigenomics -- developing personalized diets for disease prevention -- part 2 just published in OMICS
Date:3/17/2009

New Rochelle, NY, March 17, 2009The relationships between food, nutrition science, and health outcomes have been intensively analyzed over the past century. Genomic variation among individuals and populations is a new factor that enriches and challenges our understanding of these complex relationships. Hence, the rapidly emerging intersection of nutritional science and genomics nutrigenomics was the focus of a special issue of OMICS: A Journal of Integrative Biology in December 2008 (Part 1). The OMICS February 2009 Nutrigenomics Special Issue (Part 2) is now available free online at www.liebertpub.com/omi

"Together, these two issues expand the scope and depth of critical scholarship in nutrigenomics, in keeping with an integrated multidisciplinary analysis across the bioscience, omics technology, social, ethical, intellectual property and policy dimensions," write Guest Editors Vural Ozdemir, MD, PhD, and Batrice Godard, PhD, from the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Montreal, Canada.

"Nutrition impacts people on a daily basis in both health and disease, as well as in prevention and treatment of certain multifactorial diseases. Nutrigenomics thus offers a significant promise for public health genomics and development of customized nutritional interventions guided by human genomic variation. Importantly, nutrigenomics may also suggest further omics biotechnology applications for investigations of host-environment interactions such as in environmental health and ecology (ecogenomics) and agriculture (agrigenomics). Hence, nutrigenomics is a timely and valuable field of inquiry for omics science and integrative biology," says Eugene Kolker, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of OMICS and Chief Data Officer at Seattle Children's Hospital and Head, Bioinformatics and High-throughput Data Analysis Lab at Seattle Children's Research Institute.
