This course examines the principles and applications of genomics and epigenomics as they relate to human nutrition, environmental exposures and disease etiology. Course lectures will address gene transcription, epigenetic mechanisms, gene-environment interactions, and environmental epigenomics. Case studies will evaluate these processes using both animal and human examples drawn from the primary literature. Students will also be introduced to current laboratory methods and emerging technologies for examining genomics and epigenomics.
