Beschreibung

Nutritional genomics paves the way for novel applications in medicine and human nutrition, and this volume presents the latest data on how genetic variation is associated with dietary response and how nutrients influence gene expression. In so doing, it brings together the various disciplines involved in this field of research, making this essential reading for nutritionists, biochemists and molecular biologists.

Portrait

Professor Regina Brigelius-Flohé is the head of the Department of Biochemistry of Micronutrients in the German Institute of Human Nutrition, Potsdam, Germany. Prior to her position in this institute, she worked in industry in the Center of Research of Gruenenthal GmbH and in the Institute for Molecular Pharmacology in Hannover, Germany. Her work has focused on understanding the mechanisms by which small nutrient molecules such as selenium and vitamin E contribute to human health
Professor Hans-Georg Joost was made scientific director of the German Institute of Human Nutrition in 2002. Throughout his career he has published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers, with a primary focus on obesity research.


Pressestimmen

"Die Untersuchung der Wechselwirkung zwischen der Ernährung bzw. den Inhaltsstoffen von Lebensmitteln und dem menschlichen Genom generiert Impulse für die wirtschaftliche Umsetzung wissenschaftlicher Ergebnisse sowohl für die Ernährungsindustrie als auch im Bereich der Prävention ernährungsbedingter Erkrankungen, z. B. in Diagnostika. Das vorgestellte Buch präsentiert die neuesten Erkenntnisse dieses jungen Forschungsgebietes."
Umweltjournal
"Ein Standardwerk für jeden Ernährungsmediziner und Studierenden der Ernährungswissenschaften und verwandten Fakultäten."
