Sensory Fingerprint: the Genetics of Taste Perception
In matters of taste, there is no argument. People differ, often dramatically, in their ability to taste and smell many of the constituents in foods and drinks and at least some of these differences are due to inborn genotypes in the taste and olfactory receptors. I will explain ongoing work in my laboratory to investigate the global scale of the human flavor experience and its biological underpinnings.
