Abstract

Recently, the first genome-wide searches for genes predisposing to or protecting against the development of alcohol dependence in humans have been carried out. Genetic studies in animal models of alcohol-related behaviors have also identified candidate chromosomal regions and potential candidate genes that can be tested in human populations.
