Genetische Aspekte bei Alkoholismus
Studies in twins demonstrate major genetic influences in the development of alcohol use disorders (AUD) such as addiction. Candidate studies and genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified numerous candidate genes for excessive alcohol consumption and AUD. Here we present a convergent functional genetics approach which is a translational methodology that integrates multiple lines of evidence from studies in human and animal models to get a better understanding of the genetics of AUD.
