The systematic reviews planned within the framework of the Junior Research Group (PeNut) primarily address "gene-lifestyle interactions".

Subsequently, systematic literature analyses on the interaction of genetic factors and lifestyle parameters, such as nutrition and exercise, on body weight are planned.
