Physiological and Nutritional Genomics

Sumedha Saha Herbert (Author) Denise D. Mclnerney (Author)
Synopsis As the projects under genomics are being constantly debated by futurists, and a strong voice for a strict regulation is being heard worldwide (not against the science as such, but the debatable way of using it against humanity), the areas which have attracted less criticism are physiological and Nutritional facets of the genomic are fascinating as well as instrumental in fighting diseases, he board goal of physiological genomics research is to link genes to their function using appropriate experimental and computational techniques. Modern genomics experiments enable the generation of vast quantities of data, and interpretation of this data requires the integration of information derived from many diverse sources. The interface between the nutritional environment and cellular/genetic processes is being referred to as “nutrigenomics.” The fundamental concepts of the field are that the progression from a healthy phenotype must occur by changes in gene expression or by differences in activities of proteins and enzymes and that dietary chemicals directly or indirectly chemicals directly or indirectly regulate the expression of genomic information. The idea being this book s to produce a work that explains the role of nutrients in the design of the gene expression of a living of the gene expression of a living cell (or organism). A Huge database is available on web and a whole chapter is devoted to the resources and software like Annotation Tools and browsers, which students can access and use for research purposes.
