Sociological Research

Jason Boardman, University of Colorado, Boulder

There are many empirical examples of gene-environment interaction research in sociology and most of this work is discussed in one or the following reviews. Each paper below makes a strong case for the importance of a sociological framework when considering genetic associations and hypothesizing specific gene-environment interactions. I also provided the paper by Bruce Link because it provides a wonderful overview of the links between epidemiology and sociology and lessons from this same framework, in my opinion, can be applied to the bulk of sociological research on gene-environment interactions.
