Nutrigenomics is one of the upcoming sciences that have the potential to open up new arenas towards health and disease management. Earlier generalized approach towards health and disease management was employed in the health sector in which human genetics and its respective environment was taken into account, nevertheless in this contemporary approach nutrition and its interaction with human genome holds focal position. With regards to nutrition and human genomics and their interaction two terms as nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics are employed but both of these terms are distant as well as closely related depending upon the context. According to various different research studies conducted on the subject revealed that nutrients have the potential of influencing gene and its expression. Nutrients do serve as qualifying agents that can affect the overall functioning of genes at all levels. In order to uncover the various aspects and to deepen our comprehension on the subject various different approaches-more precisely ‘OMICS’ sciences are employed. Transcriptomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics and Epigenomics greatly serve the purpose. Nutrigenomics has been anticipated as a revolutionary scientific approach that will provide us with more customized, tailor-made and individual specific approach towards health and disease management.
