NUTR 775 - Nutrigenomics and Health

Credits: 3
Nutritional genomics (nutrigenomics), the junction between health and diet can be seen as the combination of molecular nutrition and genomics.  Diet is the most important environmental factor influencing expression of genetic information because of the constant exposure to nutrients in foods.  The advent of omics-based sciences has created unprecedented opportunities for increasing our understanding of how nutrients modulate gene expression, influence cellular and organismal metabolism and ultimately influence health.  The course will be taught using integrative concepts of nutritional biochemistry, gene function, signal transduction and molecular biology in context of human diseases. Prerequisites: CHEM 464 and BIOL 371 (waiver by petition only).
