Here’s a different look at the missing ingredient needed to truly understand genomics. Presented in the context of clinical application, you’ll learn the biochemistry that ties together genomics and functional nutrition.

In this course, you’ll gain an appreciation for the role of biochemistry and how it informs functional nutritional recommendations, how genomic testing is the bridge to understanding a person’s unique biochemistry, and ultimately enables personalization of nutritional interventions. We’ll start with monogenic examples of biochemical pathways, and move into more complex polygenic systems.
