Abstract

The risks of most common health and developmental outcomes are contributed to by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Understanding of ways in which genes influence such outcomes, and especially of how their interaction with environmental factors affects health and development should lead to the identification of causal pathways and thence appropriate intervention strategies.
