Additionally, the extent and nature of genetic interaction are important to theoretical explanations for the selective advantage of sexual. Another hypothesis is the interaction between genetic variations melatonin pathway genes and oxidative stress. New data analysis methods many studies can only analyze one type of environmental exposure at a time, which does not account for combined effects of multiple exposures and genes acting together.

It is variable and undergoes continuous change throughout the life of the organism. Each of the genes has a dominant allele and a recessive allele. A gene interaction is the result of inheriting genes that conflict in some way, making it impossible for all of them to express as coded, or of inheriting a set of interrelated genes that interact with each other to express a phenotype.
