Heterogeneity in metabolism, often caused by genetic variation, results in differences between people in their requirements for, and responses to nutrients. A better understanding of the underlying causes of metabolic heterogeneity, including the genetic causes, is important for developing targeted nutrition recommendations and interventions – the field of precision nutrition (also called personalized nutrition).

This Research Topic welcomes articles covering the following themes, among others:
• Genetics and circadian rhythms in metabolic pathways;
• Genetics of taste;
• Gene-based dietary advice;
• Precision nutrition in the prevention of cardiovascular disease;
• Genetics and heterogeneity in obesity;
• Heterogeneity in fructose metabolism and responses;
• Integrating metabolomic and genetic data to study metabolic heterogeneity;
• Precision nutrition and metabolic syndrome;
• Selection of gene variants for precision online nutrition guidance;
• Ethics of nutrigenetic interventions;
• Genotype-specific rates of caffeine metabolism;
• Gene-based population-wide nutrition interventions;
• Genome-wide association studies of vitamin adequacy;
• Commercial use of nutrigenetic information;
• Nutrigenetics in weight management;
• Nutrigenetics of birth defects;
• Nutrigenetics of cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease;
• Transgenic approaches to nutrigenetics;
• Nutrigenetics of trace minerals and genetic interactions with Mediterranean diet.


Keywords: SNPs, Individualized nutrition, Genetic polymorphisms, Metabolism, Single nucleotide polymorphism
