nutrigenomics

Nutrigenomics is the application of the sciences of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics to human nutrition, especially the relationship between nutrition and health. Nutrition and health research is focused on the prevention of disease by optimizing and maintaining cellular, tissue, organ and whole-body homeostasis . This requires understanding, and ultimately regulating, a multitude of nutrient-related interactions at the gene, protein and metabolic levels.
