Exercise Genomics encompasses the translation of exercise genomics into preventive medicine by presenting a broad overview of the rapidly expanding research examining the role of genetics and genomics within the areas of exercise performance and health-related physical activity. Leading researchers from a number of the key exercise genomics research groups around the world have been brought together to provide updates and analysis on the key discoveries of the past decade, as well as lend insights and opinion about the future of exercise genomics, especially within the contexts of translational and personalized medicine. Clinicians, researchers and health/fitness professionals will gain up-to-date background on the key findings and critical unanswered questions across several areas of exercise genomics, including performance, body composition, metabolism, and cardiovascular disease risk factors. Importantly, basic information on genomics, research methods, and statistics are presented within the context of exercise science to provide students and professionals with the foundation from which to fully engage with the more detailed chapters covering specific traits.

Exercise Genomics will be of great value to health/fitness professionals and graduate students in kinesiology, public health and sports medicine desiring to learn more about the translation of exercise genomics into preventive medicine.

Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:". Den renommierten Herausgebern ist es mit diesem Band gelungen, dem Leser den neuesten Stand einer relativ jungen Wissenschaftsdisziplin nahe zu bringen. . werden in acht anspruchsvollen Einzel-Kapiteln . die Problematiken bei der Interpretation und Umsetzung von Erkenntnissen aus der Genom-Forschung in individuelle physische Leistungsoptimierung durchaus spannend dargestellt. . Sie vermitteln uns mit diesem Band einen hervorragenden Überblick auf die vor uns liegenden Aufgaben, Risiken sowie enormen Chancen einer Genom basierten Anleitung zur körperlichen Aktivität auf den Feldern von Sport und translationaler Medizin." (Uwe Schumann und Martina Velders, in: Deutsche Zeitschrift für Sportmedizin, 2011, Vol. 62, Issue 12, S. 395)
