    "Psychiatric Genetics draws students, educators, and practitioners alike into the world of psychiatric genetics with a discussion of its broad trends and of the strengths and limitations of its methods to provide insight into the roles of both genetic and environmental factors in the etiology of psychiatric and substance use disorders."--BOOK. Future of Psychiatric Genetics. As we enter the new millennium, the field of psychiatric genetics is experiencing a paradigm shift. Linkage analyses continue to be largely disappointing – even though some loci can be confirmed, positional cloning is considered an unlikely route to identify genes involved in most psychiatric disorders.

    Feb 01,  · Psychiatric genetics: methods and reviews is an edited volume in the series on “Methods in molecular medicine” by Humana Press. It is a relatively compact volume that comprises 11 chapters with the main content divided into two sections: the first of these addresses methods currently used in psychiatric genetics and includes chapters on Cited by: 6. We are approaching a period of crisis and reevaluation in the behavioral genetics and psychiatric genetics fields, as attempts to discover “genes for behavior” have, with possible rare exceptions, been unsuccessful. Schizophrenia is the most investigated psychiatric disorder, yet although there have been many claims of gene “association,” decades of molecular genetic studies have.
