Nutrimetabonomics: nutritional applications of metabolic profiling

Posted on 20. March, 2014.

An individual’s metabolic phenotype, and ultimately health, is significantly influenced by complex interactions between their genes and the diet. Studying these associations and their downstream biochemical consequences has proven extremely challenging using traditional hypothesis-led strategies. Metabonomics, a systems biology approach, allows the global metabolic response of biological systems to stimuli to be characterized.

An outline of object-oriented philosophy

Posted on 21. February, 2014.

The term “object-oriented philosophy” was initially borrowed in jest from computer science, but took on a life of its own.
