BCHM 487 - Nutrigenomics

Prerequisites, BCHM 208  or BIOL 208  and BCHM 335 . Nutrigenomics is the study of the interaction between food and genes. In the course, how components of diet regulate human metabolism through molecular mechanisms will be investigated and whether dietary requirements vary based on genotype will be discerned. Further, associated implications for clinical practice, food production, and policy development will be explored. Some sections of BCHM 487 will be held with FSN 587. (Offered fall semester, alternate years.) 3 credits
