Alcoholism: searching for the genetic needle in a haystack

Searching for a genetic needle in a genome haystack

There is no single gene that determines or protects from alcoholism.
Specific genes interact with one another to confer increased or decreased risk for alcoholism.
Genes also interact with the environment to influence an individual's susceptibility to alcohol.

The key to future research is understanding the interactions between genes and the environment.
