330.637.11 INTRODUCTION TO BEHAVIORAL AND PSYCHIATRIC GENETICS
Provides an overview of research methods and their application to the study of behavioral and psychiatric genetics. Briefly introduces necessary concepts in molecular and population genetics. Surveys study designs and analytic methods used to investigate the genetic contribution to human behavior and its disturbances. Study designs include the following: family, twin and adoption studies to evaluate the extent of a genetic contribution; segregations studies to determine the mode of inheritance; linkage and association studies to map genes; and other epidemiologic designs to elucidate gene by environment interactions. These are illustrated through examples of real studies.
