CONTENTS:- Genomics: Building the grand library of life; Finding the ideal model of gene study; Gene mapping and genetic research in near future; Nutritional genomics: The next frontier in the post genomic era; A broad perspective of nutritional genomics; Nutrition and gene regulation: Molecular targets for bioactive food components; Lessons from lipids; Tools and strategies for physiological genomics; The importance of circadian Rhythms in genome study; A reference case of genetic tooling.
As the projects under genomics are being constantly debated by futurists, and a strong voice for a strict regulation is being heard worldwide not against the science as such, but the debatable way of using it against humanity, the areas which have attracted less criticism are physiology and nutrition. Physiological and nutritional facets of the genomics are fascinating as well as instrumental in fighting diseases.
The board goal of physiological genomics research is to like geneses to their functions using appropriate experimental and computational techniques. The idea behind this book is to produce a work that explains the role of nutrients in the design of the gene expression of a living cell or organism. A huge database is available on web and a whole chapter is devoted to the resources and software like annotation tools and browsers, which students can access and use for research purposes.
