Nutrigenomics has been called a “post-genome” field of research because it could only develop in a meaningful way after the completion of the sequencing of the human genome. Nutritional genomics, or nutrigenomics, attempts to study the genome-wide influences of nutrition and identify the genes that influence the risk of diet-related diseases on a genome-wide scale, and to understand the mechanisms that underlie these genetic predispositions. While traditional nutrition research concentrated on nutrient deficiencies and impairment of health, it nowadays focuses on improving health through diet.
As a new science, nutrigenomics brings along new terminology, novel experimental techniques, and a fundamentally new approach to nutrition research, such as high-throughput technologies that enable the global study of gene expression in a cell or organism.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide new insights on the use of nutrigenomics for improving health through diet.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
