Metabolic Medicine

Epigenome such as DNA methylation and histone modifications is acquired genetic infomation that is rewritable via various enviromental cues. Epigenome is cellular memory for adapting to the external environment, and it is closely involved in disease onset. Under the concept of "neo-nutritional science", we are integrally analyzing transcriptome, epigenome, and metabolome in adipocytes to reveal environmental adaptation system, and will build up a new paradigm for lifestyle-related disease.
