Introduction to Genomic Medicine and Culinary Genomics


This course provides a solid foundation for understanding the science underlying genomics, and its clinical and culinary applications.

There are 5 lessons, each with several sections, where you’ll learn:

  • The history and science behind genomics and the other “omics” fields, including epigenomics.
  • The difference between whole genome vs SNP testing, pros and cons of each.
  • How to evaluate a genomic testing company – key questions to ask.
  • The current status of genomics in clinical practice with case histories to illustrate.
  • The science behind the revolutionary concept of culinary genomics – introduced in the U.S. by Amanda Archibald in 2015.
  • Clinical applications and examples of translating DNA to food on your plate.
  • Food-gene roadmaps you can use in your practice.

Each Section contains 3-5 questions. To qualify for CPE credits, you must pass each Section quiz with a score of 80% or better and complete the course survey. Because critical thinking is an important skill for using genomics successfully in practice, some of the questions may be designed to assess how well you can integrate and extrapolate the information presented. You may take each Section quiz as many times as you need to master the material.

The instructors for this program are Joe Veltmann, PhD FAAIM DCCN; Roberta Kline MD; and Amanda Archibald RD.
