NUTR 418 - Nutrigenomics (3)


This course will provide students with an understanding of the fundamental concepts involved in the regulation of gene expression by dietary nutrients, and how individual genetic variation affects nutrient uptake and metabolism. This will be achieved by investigating the complex interactions between diet, genotype, and phenotype as they pertain to fuel metabolism, health status, and chronic disease risk. Furthermore, the implications of this emerging science with regard to personalized nutrition in dietetics practice will be discussed. LEC 2, LAB 1. Prereq: NUTR 415 . Offered: Spring.
