Socioecological variation can have strong effects on fitness-related traits. However, we know little about the molecular mechanisms that mediate these effects. Our work addresses this gap using captive rhesus macaques and wild baboons as model systems. In this talk, I will discuss our recent findings on (i) the cell type and condition-specific gene regulatory response to variation in experimentally manipulated social status; and (ii) the epigenomic signature of variation in resource base. Together, our results highlight the importance of molecular genomic mechanisms in linking social interactions and ecological context to their health and fitness-related consequences.
