nutrigenomics

(no͞o′trə-jə-nō′mĭks, nyo͞o′-)
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The study of how the genome and diet interact to influence human and animal health and disease.

nu·tri·ge·no·mics

(nū'tri-jē-nō'miks)
The study of how diet influences gene expression, and thus, health.
Synonym(s): nutragenomics, nutritional genomics.
[nutri- + genomics]

nutrigenomics

The use of knowledge of an individual's genetic makeup to devise a personally appropriate eating strategy. Also known as “personalized nutrition.”

nutrigenomics

analysis of the effects of nutrient intake on gene function and health, by using such approaches as GENOMICS, METABOLOMICS, PROTEOMICS and TRANSCRIPTOMICS. Genetic variations affect how the body utilizes nutrients and removes toxins. An understanding of an individual's genotype should enable diets to be tailored to meet specific genetic needs and new foods developed for personalized health and nutritional benefit.
