, pharmacogenomics and toxicogenomics as related to and applied to marine biotechnology, molecular biology, marine biology, marine microbiology, environmental biotechnology, environmental science, aquaculture, pharmaceutical science and bioprocess engineering.
Many practitioners, and, surprisingly, academics as well, cannot differentiate between nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics
Company research focuses on adult stem cell science, telomere support, DNA repair, fat loss technology, and nutrigenomics
: The New Science of Feeding Your Dog for Optimum Health teaches the basics of using 'functional foods' to promote ideal weight and thwart disease--but it's not a recommendation for the casual pet owner who believes that Alpo and Purina Dog Chow is 'good enough'.
The conference included over 20 high-level debates, covering a range of compelling topics, from understanding the complex issues affecting the nutritional state of the nation to exciting new developments in food science, such as the advent of nutrigenomics
. In addition there was a series of 80 seminars, featuring over 300 speakers, on themes ranging from successful ways to reduce salt, sugar and fat, to the marketing potential for brands that drive healthy food choice, and the factors driving growth in nutrition for health and wellbeing.
