Genetics is a highly complex field but our step-by-step approach to explaining the science that underpins DNAFit will equip you with enough basic knowledge to make it more understandable for you and your clients. Learn about genes, their effects and the role that SNPs play in determining a person’s unique response. We’ll also investigate the theme of “nature vs nurture”, explaining how a person’s environment and gene expression need to work hand in hand to achieve their best results.
