Understanding how genes and the environment interact — Science AAAS

We are all products of our environment. What we eat, the microbes and parasites to which we are exposed,
and even the environment of our predecessors all play a role in our ability to reproduce and live to a ripe old age. But how external factors like these interact with our genes to produce either health or pathology is generally not well understood.

Understanding how our changing environment affects us can help us generate models that will harness our surroundings for optimal health. This booklet offers a snapshot of our current knowledge of how genes and the environment interact.
