Our understanding of genomics has come a long way, but there's an even longer way to go.
We're helping turn the ‘don’t-knows’ into ‘do-knows’ with the Exercise & Nutritional Genomics Research Centre
Since the completion of the human genome project in 2003, the potential that lies in our genome has excited science and the wider community alike. Using DNAFit’s strict scientific inclusion protocol, we’ve identified a small selection of genetic variants that we know to affect our response to exercise and nutrition. At the Exercise & Nutritional Genomics Research Centre, we’re furthering our understanding of how our genetics interact specifically with how we train and eat, from discovering new gene variants to exploring new ways to use our genetics in our fitness and nutrition lifestyle.

For this research, the team from the Exercise & Nutritional Genomics Research Centre looked at whether the DNAFit Peak Performance Algorithm ™ could be used to give us a better idea of how to design the optimal resistance training program for an individual, using their genetic profile
