GSN 564E - Nutritional Genetics


Credit(s): 2.00

Have you ever wondered if your diet affects your genes? Or whether your genes affect what you can eat? Students in this course examine the relationship between genetics, metabolism and diet. Topics include how diet can affect epigenetic patterns and gene expression, how our metabolic response to food has been shaped by genetic variation, and how our health is impacted by the interplay of genetics and diet. Students will also consider the utility of using genetic information to make dietary choices.
