About This Quiz & Worksheet

Nutritional genomics studies the relationship between genes and nutrition, and this quiz and worksheet will assess what you know about this relatively new field of study. In the quiz, students will be asked about nutritional genomics and the two disciplines within the field.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In this quiz, you will be asked about:

  • A term used to describe dietary recommendations based on an individual's genome
  • Nutrigenetics
  • The discipline that studies the effects of foods on gene expression

Skills Practiced

The worksheet and assessment will test the student's skills in the following areas:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information about nutritional genomics from the related lesson
  • Making connections - use your understanding of the concept of nutritional genomics to understand why some people may experience food allergies
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about how a certain food can affect a person's genes in a different light
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding dietary recommendations based on a person's individual genes and interpret it correctly

Additional Learning

Learn more about nutritional genomics by reviewing the accompanying lesson called Nutritional Genomics: Nutrigenomics & Nutrigenetics. The following objectives are met during this lesson:

  • Define nutritional genomics and identify its two disciplines
  • Understand how food can affect an individual's genetics
  • Learn that a person's dietary recommendations could be based someday on their genetic makeup
  • Differentiate between nutrigenomics & nutrigenetics
  • Know how a person's genetic code could lead to food allergies or disease
