Special issue links genetics and environment in aging studies

A recently released special issue of The Journals of Gerontology: Psychological and Social Sciences asserts that social environments can have a greater effect on genetics than was previously thought. The volume, titled "Research on Environmental Effects in Genetic Studies of Aging," features articles devoted to integrating genetics and genomics with behavioral and social science research on aging.

The issue was guest edited by James F. Crow of the Laboratory of Genetics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Thomas E. Johnson of the Institute for Behavioral Genetics and Department of Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Jennifer R. Harris of the National Institute on Aging and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health provides an introduction. The table of contents is as follows:
