With contributions from 66 world-renowned authorities on the subject, Genomics And Proteomics In Nutrition focuses on the effect of genetic expression on protein production, establishing links between gene expression and nutrition, the influence of micro- and macronutrients on cellular homeostasis, and the relationship between diet, genetic predisposition, and human disease.
Shows how bioinformatics and functional genomic databases can transform molecular biology research using a yeast ELO2/ human HELO1 protein cloning example.
A cutting-edge reference, Genomics and Proteomics in Nutrition reveals new applications and insights in nutrition science and explores tools for nutrition research in the post-genomic era.
