Environmental geographic effect on the human leukocyte transcriptome

A composite photo showing two distinct traditional lifestyles in different geographic contexts experienced by Moroccan Amazighs: desert nomadic (upper) and mountain agrarian (lower). Regional population differences, including lifestyle, geography, and biotic factors, can play at least as great a role as genetic divergence in modulating gene expression variation in humans (see Idaghdour et al., 10.1371/journal.pgen.1000052).
