Personalized Nutrition and Healthy Living from a Genomic Perspective


Unhealthy diet has been attributed as an important risk factor for the development and progression of chronic non-communicable diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cancer. Personalized nutrition aims to enhance human health by tailoring dietary recommendations to individuals using lifestyle, genetic, phenotypic, medical, nutritional and other information.

This special issue of Human Genomics is dedicated to the better understanding of personalized nutrition strategies capturing new advancements in the field of genomics and big data analysis. To this regard, a collection of reviews and original research articles will bring together how different areas of biological information including genetic background, gut microbiome profiling and other omics data information can be incorporated into individual nutritional recommendations for health maintenance and disease prevention.

This collection is no longer accepting submissions.

Submission guidelines can be found here and please submit to the series via our submission system.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies.
