It is becoming increasingly clear that diet produces rapid epigenetic changes that may affect gene expression. Genetics plays a huge role in how individuals respond to food and nutrition, so understanding this can potentially accelerate genomic biomarker discovery.
To optimize your biomarker assessment research, we provide targeted biomarker identification and characterization using state-of-the-art instrumentation including next-generation sequencing platforms.
By studying epigenetic changes, our team can identify biomarkers that influence macronutrients (carbs, fats & proteins) and micronutrients/vitamins uptake, and assess how they might be influenced by the presence of common gene variants and mutations.
Our multi-disciplinary teams can assist you in all of your biomarker assessment needs, including:
- Nutrient biomarker identification for the purpose of developing functional food products and supplements.
- Methodologies for determining the impact of nutrients or bioactive compounds on health and disease states.
- Tracking of enhanced nutrient profiles in foods, including fruits and vegetables.
