TECHNOLOGICAL PROSPECT: GENETIC TESTS APPLIED TO EXERCISE AND SPORT
Exercise and sports are important factors in health promotion. The high performance is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors that leads to the athlete phenotype. The genetic tests such as genotyping and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), allow to identify variations in the genotype that can direct to better sport profiles, as well to a to a more individualized training prescription. The present work had as objective to perform a technological prospection about genetic tests applied to exercise and sport, through patent applications searches in national and international databases. The data suggest that genetic tests applied to sports are still very recent and scarce and it’s needed a better orientation of the scientific knowledge producing genetic profiles detection technology applied to sports.
