The genomic era has arrived! This workshop provides an introductory overview of the emerging field of Nutritional Genomics. During this 90 minute webinar we will cover topics such as basic genetics; examples of diet-gene interaction in chronic diseases; trends and developments in industry as well as where to find further resources. The course has been developed by a registered dietitian with experience of working in the NHS, and who has further certification in Nutritional Genomics from the European Nutrigenomics Organisation in Wageningen (Netherlands) and in South Africa, plus practical experience in the field.

This one day workshop is designed to make use of freely available open-source specific bioinformatics databases containing data on ontology of chemical entities. The first part of the day introduces delegates to the database held by the European Bioinformatics Institute. The second part provides an overview on the use of publicly available resources and enzyme portals. Tutorials will be followed by exercises to explore functionality, extract data and search for experiments on tissue, cell or nutrient of interest.
If you have any queries, please contact our Training and Education Manager.
Location: University College Dublin, Ireland
New and emerging technologies have the potential to advance nutrition science; examples of such technologies include nutrigenomic approaches to enhance molecular phenotyping, the use of metabolomics in dietary biomarker discovery and the use of epigenetics to understand gene-environment interactions. Furthermore, emerging technologies are set to make significant impact in Public Health Nutrition with tracking of dietary intake and physical activity.
The local organisers; Dr Lorrane Brennan and Dr Breige McNulty from University College Dublin, alongside the Nutrition Society Science Committee are in the process of developing a programme for this years Annual Summer Conference, which will be hosted in Dublin, Ireland on 11 - 14 July.
