Genetic variation and dietary response in nutrigenomics.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how genes and diet interact. It uses methods like proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics to look into the molecular interactions between nutrients and genes to determine how even small changes could potentially affect animal and human health/performance. Protein, fat, mineral, and vitamin supplementation changes are the main dietary modifications studied in livestock with a focus on health and production traits. For improved health, productivity, and the environment, nutrigenomics carefully chooses nutrients to fine-tune the expression of genes that fit animal/human genotypes. Nutrigenomics is a stride forward in our understanding of the function of food as an epigenetic component in the occurrence of various diseases because it merges nutrition, molecular biology, genomics, bioinformatics, molecular medicine, and epidemiology.Author(s): Syed Mudasirabi*
