CSIRO scientists explore the link between diet and DNA

CSIRO : 04 October, 2006  (Application Story)
Researchers from CSIRO have joined with some of the world
Researchers from CSIRO have joined with some of the world’s top scientists to provide an overview of nutrigenomics.

Researchers from Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation have joined with some of the world’s top scientists to provide an overview of nutrigenomics, a new frontier in nutritional science, at a conference in Singapore which starts today.

The International Life Sciences Institute Southeast Asia Region conference on nutrigenomics is Asia’s first international conference on the study of the interaction between nutrients and the genome.

CSIRO Food Futures Flagship Director Dr Bruce Lee says the conference will discuss new perspectives on genes, nutrients and health.

'It will also focus on ethnic diversity and genetic adaption through human migration and dietary patterns, and explore the potential role, application and impact of nutrigenomics in addressing public health issues of Asia’s populations,' Dr Lee says.
