Nutrigenetics


As per available reports about 9 Relevant Journals, 17 Conferences, 24 Workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to nutrigenetics and about 456 Open Access Articles are being published on nutrigenetics.

Nutrigenetics is a branch of nutritional genomics which aims to identify genetic susceptibility to diseases and genetic variation in the effects of nutrient intake on the genome. Nutrigenetics is not to be confused with nutrigenomics, which focuses on the role specific foods have in activating genes that affect susceptibility to certain illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Nutrigenetics aims to offer people personalized disease prevention advice based on genetic makeup. Due to evolutionary processes, humans differ in their DNA, more precisely in so-called SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphism). Among others, SNPs influence the way individuals absorb and process food components. Physiological activity in the human organism that concerns the consumption or transportation of nutrients is also connected with the reciprocation of various genetic variants. This assumption forms the basis for nutrigenetic sciences. Moreover, different nutrigenetic processes in the human body can imply an advantage in terms of natural selection. Thus, for example, evolution urged people to digest lactose from cow milk. The identification of the necessary genotype is carried out by means of a blood analysis or a cheek swab. Subsequently, the DNA is analyzed in different ways. A common way to study the genetic data is the so-called “candidate gene approach” when one possible risk gene is identified. After experiments on cell cultures, animals or humans scientists can establish a positive or negative correlation between the expression of this candidate gene and nutritional aspects.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contain over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conferences organized worldwide.

Scope and Importance:

Nutrigenetics is the study of the relationships among genes, diet, and health outcomes. Nutrigenomics is the study of how genes and nutrients interact at the molecular level. The field of nutrigenetics is relatively new. In 2003, the Human Genome Project, which identified all the genes in human DNA and determined the sequence of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA, was completed. Knowing the sequences of the human genome opened the doors to examine the relationship among an individual’s genetic makeup, dietary intake, and health outcomes.

At present, personalized nutrition isn’t widely practiced since genotyping doesn’t occur routinely for polygenic diseases due to its lack of cost-effectiveness. A few private companies offer genotyping and personalized nutrition recommendations based on a handful of genetic variations, but whether this is effective in promoting health and preventing chronic disease hasn’t been determined. Interestingly, the genetic variation among individuals is minimal. Most people are approximately 99% genetically identical, with little variation in the roughly 3 billion base pairs that comprise the human genome. However, this approximately 1% genetic variation leads to a wide variability of health outcomes, depending on dietary intake and other environmental exposures. Some of the genetic variation among individuals is in the form of single nucleotide polymorphisms.

Nutrigenetics is a branch of nutritional genomics which aims to identify genetic susceptibility to diseases and genetic variation in the effects of nutrient intake on the genome.  Nutrigenetics is not to be confused with nutrigenomics, which focuses on the role specific foods have in activating genes that affect susceptibility to certain illnesses such as Alzheimer’s Disease and cancer. Nutrigenetics is still in its relative infancy compared to other branches of medical science. It aims to offer people personalized disease prevention advice based on genetic makeup.  Physiological activity in the human organism that concerns the consumption or transportation of nutrients is also connected with the reciprocation of various genetic variants. This assumption forms the basis for nutrigenetic sciences. Moreover, different nutrigenetic processes in the human body can imply an advantage in terms of natural selection. Thus, for example, evolution urged people to digest lactose from cow milk. Subsequently, the DNA is analyzed in different ways. A common way to study the genetic data is the so-called “candidate gene approach” when one possible risk gene is identified. After experiments on cell cultures, animals or humans scientists can establish a positive or negative correlation between the expression of this candidate gene and nutritional aspects. Another popular scientific method is a genome-wide association study which also leads to the identification of relevant gene variants. In particular, nutrigenetic analyses are based on the effect of nutritional components on the genome, proteome, metabolome and transcriptome.   In the long run, nutrigenetics should allow nutritionists and physicians to individualize health and diet recommendations. Consequently, preventive medicine, diagnostics and therapies could be optimized. In fact, comparative trials such as a current study from the German Sport University Cologne prove that health counseling based on the results of a nutrigenetic analysis is more successful than conventional diet counseling. Nutrigenetics offers a lot of potential. In the past only a few nutrigenetic studies have been conducted. Lately, however, more scientists discover this study field for further investigation.

Market Analysis:

Many researchers are conducting research in the field of nutrigenetics and say that we’ll know much more about SNPs and their effect on health in response to diet in next 5- 10 years of time. Researchers believe individuals will soon be routinely genotyped for SNPs that affect nutritional status and receive dietary recommendations according to their genotype and Knowledge in this field is increasing exponentially.

For personalized nutrition to be widely practiced, not only do researchers need to discover more SNPs that influence nutritional status, but computer software also must be developed to help dietitians make dietary recommendations based on an individual’s genetic composition. Thousands of SNPs are likely to affect nutritional status, and it will be impossible for dietitians to make comprehensive recommendations without specially designed software.
