Author(s):

Abstract:
Increase in demand of animal products leads to search of new feeding strategies that can give more production in less feed. This could be possible through omic technology through the nutrigenomics. Nutrigenomics is nothing but the study of effect of nutrients on gene expression and gene regulation. By following new feeding strategies it is possible to downregulates the genes responsible to stress in animals that are responsible in inducing diseases and low production and upregulate the genes that will improve fertility and production through nutrient-drug interaction. Supplementation of energy, certain amino acids, vitamins, minerals and nutritional regulation would leads to improve production, reproduction and health performance in animals by reducing the disease occurance through improving the immunity and increase in synthesis of necessary enzymes and hormones. Nutrigenomics tool could become useful in increasing profitability in animal husbandry by improving animal health, production, product quality and reproduction.
