Welcome to the first issue of the Journal of Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics
, the official journal of the International Society on Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics
(ISNN). The journal intends to be the premier journal in the new
and rapidly expanding field of nutrigenetics/nutrigenomics. In the past decades,
nutrition and genetic sciences have individually contributed to increase
our understanding of the etiology of several chronic diseases. In the
post-genomic era, it is becoming obvious that the links between nutrition and
disease cannot be fully understood without taking into account the genetic
dimension. The study of the interaction between genes and nutrients, whether
it deals with the role of genes in determining the response to nutrients (nutrigenetics)
or the role of nutrients in gene expression (nutrigenomics), is thus
critical to unravel the mechanisms through which nutrition can influence
disease development. There are many challenges facing researchers interested
in understanding the links between nutrition, genetics and health and assessing
the benefits from the knowledge that will be generated on disease prevention
and treatment. As interest in nutrigenetics/nutrigenomics continues to
grow, the need for a journal promoting research in the field becomes greater.
This journal was founded to address this need. The journal will include review
articles, commentaries, and especially cutting edge research on genetic
variation and dietary response; the role of nutrients in gene expression; genegene
and gene-nutrient interactions; the role of genetic variation in determining
nutritional requirements; clinical investigations; epidemiologic studies,
and studies in transgenic animals and tissue cultures. In the accompanying
editorial, one of the pioneers in the field, the President of the ISNN, Dr. Artemis
P. Simopoulos, makes a strong case for this new endeavor.
