Five domains enroute to personalized nutrition

Currently, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory meeting on personal genomes is underway. One can follow tweets from the meeting with the hashtag #cshpg.

A keynote speaker in today's morning session is Eric Green, Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHRGI) in the United States. In his talk, as tweeted by Greg Biggers, Green put forth five key domains by which we will achieve personalized medicine. Here, I take liberty to modify these for personalized nutrition, which often can stand upstream of medical intervention in preventing or delaying the onset of a disease condition.

Green's five points:

1 Genome Structure
2 Genome Biology
3 Disease Biology
4 Science of Medicine
5 Healthcare Delivery

My five for personalized nutrition:

1 Genome Structure
2 Genome Biology
3 Biology of the Disease-Nutrition Interface
4 Science of Nutrition & Nutrigenomics
5 Healthcare Delivery as Disease Prevention
