Nutrigenomics

Nutritional genomics, also recognized as Nutrigenomics, is a science studying the relationship between human genome, human nutrition and health. Individuals in the field work toward developing an understanding of how the whole body responds to a food via systems biology, as well as single gene/single food compound relationships. Nutritional genomics or Nutrigenomics is the relation between food and inherited genes; it was first expressed in 2001.

The term "nutritional genomics" is an umbrella term counting several subcategories, such as nutrigenetics, Nutrigenomics, and nutritional epigenetics. Each of these subcategories explains some aspect of how genes react to nutrients and express specific phenotypes, like disease risk. There are numerous applications for nutritional genomics, for case how much nutritional intervention and therapy can successfully be used for disease prevention and treatment
